Couture Reserved | Ulyana Sergeenko, Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad
by Sadeel Allam
Three collections that have called our attention for their reserved pieces. Ulyana Sergeenko, Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad. Live tales from the depths their creators. Ulyana's Russian doll pieces air a medieval essence and its cupola cuts a religious conquest. What has not been said about Elie Saab?
The man's creativity is unbeatable. Truly, a unique gift to make something so intricate look so simple. At least to the observer's eyes. Somehow, some of his couture collection through its color monochrome and caftan style reminded us a bit of the 'disco era' in the U.S., a time of change for American women, where sequins and all that glittered under the disco ball marked change. Zuhair Murad made us feel that we are walking through a forest of bejeweled branches and rain drops of crystals. Probably the only forest we wouldn't mind camping out for days.
