Ever since a triumphant runway debut in 1999, he’s been a red carpet fixture thanks to his elaborate couture gowns. But instead of his hallmark over-the-top glamour, Beirut-born Zuhair Murad veers toward elegant daywear this spring. Inspired by classic sailors, bold navy and red stripes accent flirty mini dresses, mixed-gauge knits, and a plunging V-neck jumpsuit. Elsewhere, playful lip motifs dot fluttery designs and sheer tops—a nod to lovers kissing at ports. Though the collection is brimming with an overall sense of effortless wearability, there are still hints of signature Murad throughout, especially in the bejeweled numbers and floor-skimming looks that more suited for a yacht club gala.
