Zuhair Murad Couture AW1415

Zaha Hadid’s extreme shapes have influenced the Zuhair Murad Couture Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show.

Some Zaha Hadid’s collaborations : Chanel (in 2008, Zaha Hadid designed the Chanel Mobile Art Pod), Donna Karan (Zaha Hadid created the bottle of Donna Karan’s fragrance, « Woman », launched in 2012), Fendi (Zaha Hadid reinterpreted the « Peekaboo » bag, to benefit the charity Kids Company, as part of the « Peekaboo project », launched in April 2014), Lacoste (Zaha Hadid designed shoes for Lacoste, launched in March 2009, which digitally reinterpreted Lacoste’s logo), Louis Vuitton (in 2006, Zaha Hadid redesigned the « Bucket » bag for Louis Vuitton’s exhibition, « Icons », at Louis Vuitton’s Espace Culturel, in Paris, from September 15 to November 22, 2006), melissa® (Zaha Hadid designed the melissa® + Zaha Hadid jelly shoes, launched in September 2008), Swarovski (for Spring/Summer 2010, Zaha Hadid teamed up with Atelier Swarovski to create a cuff, a necklace, a pendant and a ring), United Nude™ (Zaha Hadid designed the haute couture « NOVA » shoe for United Nude™, launched in July 2013, in collaboration with Rem D Koolhaas).

Moreover, in 2008, Christopher Kane told that he particularly loved Zaha Hadid and her work, and, in 2014, Stéphane Rolland told / Arabia that he was personally inspired by architects such as Zaha Hadid, in the research of volume for his haute couture.

    I am amazed by Zaha Hadid’s designs. I am not sure I like them — perhaps seeing them in person would be better. But, they are interesting.
    I thought “Spider Man” before I read your description. XO

      Haha, I love your “Spider-Man” reference, which marvelously describes this intricately spider web-like bodice ! Zaha Hadid’s projects have so powerfully-unique forms that you can’t help but being stupefied ! XO

      You’re very welcome ! Zuhair Murad is a master at magnifying the sculptural beauty of the female body (and, indeed, what a body this gorgeous model has) !

        Bastille Day was a very cool day, resting at home, blogging and watching couture shows on TV (I swear that I’ve thought about your Mighty when I heard the lively fireworks on the port !). Mayann

      J’adore aussi, merci ! Voilà pourquoi les divines créations de Zuhair Murad ont souvent été arborées sur le red carpet, notamment par Kristen Stewart ! XD

    Love the ‘flowy’ design of the dress. It’s intersting how even the “stiff” part is dynamic and wavy, in a way.

    • Fashion Mayann

      July 13, 2014 at 11:06 am

      Thank you for your clever comment which has truly captured the essence of this masterpiece, based on Zaha Hadid’s flowy architecture !

      Thank youuuuuuuuuu ! Arborant cette tenue légère et séductrice, tu pourrais onduler dans l’eau tel le malicieux poisson de “Gloups ! je suis un poisson” (j’espère que tu profites bien de ce mois de juillet et de ses plaisirs aquatiques) ! ❤

      • Laura Guiraud

        July 16, 2014 at 9:05 pm

        Oui je profite ^^ j’espère que toi aussi 🙂

        Etant un signe de feu (Lion), je reste éloignée de l’eau (sauf, bien sûr, pour l’hygiène corporelle XD) mais je profite bien du mois de juillet (le mois du Lion justement XD), merci ! Continue à barboter, et à poster de supers articles sur ton blog exquis ! XD ❤

    It’s gorgeous, I’m a big fan of this collection! I especially love the colours used in this collection, they’re so striking for winter, it’s a nice change from the black, grey and gold that you mainly see during the cold months. Can’t you just imagine seeing these appearing in the crowd at a black tie event? Talk about a stand out ensemble!

    • Fashion Mayann

      July 19, 2014 at 12:00 pm

      Wow, that would be fantastic to break the rules (after all, Zaha Hadid has also broken the rules in architecture !) and inject a shocking pink dose of glamour in a black tie event ! Thanks for your fab comment !

    The combination of skin colour and dress colour is simply gorgeous.

    • Fashion Mayann

      July 21, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      Indeed, thanks a lot ! The hot fuchsia definitely magnifies the gorgeous model’s skin and vice versa !
