A neo-romantic wind is blowing on the Zuhair Murad Fall/Winter 2012-2013 Couture collectionIt feels as though it just escaped from a Proustian hot house, perceived through the legendary 50s imagery of fashion (Richard Avedon, Willy Maywald…):  blossoming women-flowers, delicate, superb, sensual. Like a fantasized album of souvenirs yet totally involved in the modernity of Winter 2012-2013, socialite women appear in ball gowns with wide tulle and lace skirts enhanced by an extra-fine waist tapered under a black laced-up corset. 
Cascading like a velvet column, the long dress in emerald velvet elongates the silhouette to the infinite, ensuring a spectacular entrance to the one wearing it. Tuxedo pants or the large domino in purely black silk velvet give an even more dramatic allure to this bewitching night bird. In a Chantilly jumpsuit entirely embroidered black-on-black or a delicious light dancing dress, this seductive woman has two facets: nocturnal or floral, she captures all the gazes, ready to be picked.
