Mystical Morocco to Tyrian Seas: Saab and Murad's Haute Couture marvel in Paris

The Paris Haute Couture Week unfolded a display of fashion prowess as Lebanese designers Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad took center stage, showcasing their Spring/Summer 2024 haute couture collections.

Renowned for his red carpet mastery, Elie Saab reinforced his reputation by hosting none other than Jennifer Lopez in the front row. Saab revealed his new collection entitled "Desert Rose."

Inspired by the "mystery of Morocco, inside the souk and the light of the desert," Saab's collection featured intricate geometric patterns reminiscent of Moroccan architecture.
The combination of filigree on capes and gowns, adorned with gold accents on sunset-inspired hues, delivered a visually enchanting experience. Asymmetrical elements, such as a one-shouldered wrap cape and a batwing cape, introduced both volume and dramatic flair.

In a separate spotlight, Zuhair Murad unveiled his haute couture Spring 2024 collection, "A Tyrian Arabesque," paying homage to the Phoenicians' love for the sea.
 

The runway was graced by notable figures from the fashion industry, including Amy Jackson, Flora Coquerel, Carla Bruni, and Ahlam Al-Shamsi.

Murad's collection featured a fusion of Greco-Roman influences, incorporating drapery, Arabesque designs, and cascading chains on luxurious fabrics.

Inspired by the movement of water and sea voyages, standout pieces included an ivory satin kimono dress adorned with crystal sea spray.

The color palette drew from Mediterranean hues, with faded reds and deep greens representing marine twilights and the richness of Phoenician plains.

Both Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad continue to make waves in the haute couture, with Saab securing a deal to stage a fashion show in Saudi Arabia during the Riyadh Seasons festival in October. Their distinct styles and creative visions reaffirm their positions as prominent figures on the international fashion stage.
