La Muraille de Soi‘ is the name of Zuhair Murad‘s latest collection for Fall-Winter 2011-2012. Once again the famous Lebanese designer surprises us with beautiful and extravagant outfits. As well as his Spring/Summer collection, Zuhair Murad’s new couture collection is made from gorgeous flowy and silky materials with sequince, rhinestones and glittery details – his specific trademark. Even so, looking at his previous collections, in this one I could define some new influences.

I, for one, just couldn’t wait to see his work, so here you can see some of his glamorous outfits structured according to their main characteristic or material:

The most common feature of this collection is the bow that defines the waistline.

Zuhair Murad created some sexy outfits using sheer materials combined with velvet,  glitter and sequinces.

Metalic shine is another characteristic of Zuhair’s latest collection, the Lebanese designer managing to give the impression of fluid metal to these wonderful dresses.

The Japanese culture was a strong influence on Zuhair’s collection. These outfits are inspired by Japanese kimono’s, the designer using representative colours such as red and black. He also created some beautiful details and patterns representing cherry trees and bamboo leafs.
