Maison Rabih Kayrouz : Ready to Wear show Winter 2018 (with interview)

Designer: Rabih KayrouzInspiration: In order to be able to see more people, for once, Rabih Kayrouz presented his ready-to-wear couture collection Winter 2018 outside of his studio-atelier, opting for the American Church in Paris for a show entitled ‘It’s couture, Baby’, placed under the sign of love and friendship with choreography from Marie-Anne Gillot, and the presence on the catwalk of journalist Sophie Fontanel and Noor Fares appearing as a bride. Collection: refined, constructed, fluid. The show starts with a line of navy pea-coats and trenches. Followed by chic tailored trousers, white, black, or appearing in orange or khaki. The coats envelop the body, the dresses are round, playing with length and volume. Here Rabih adds handmade balls or embroidered lines of coloured beads. To note: the old fabrics, dating as far back as the 18th century, used for several models that the designer covered in tulle for protection and an added dimension. Interview: Cathedrals, churches, temples, they’re places for everyone, we’re at home everywhere, so I felt at home here, I had to go out to be able to welcome more friends. There’s old 18th century fabrics that I’ve reworked and covered with tulle for protection and I think that they go well together with these shapes and it’s something that touches me because when we find beautiful fabrics, they’re like relics, things that touch us enormously. It’s clothing that I like to make for women, that they like to wear, it was normal to take friends, girls who inspire me, artists, the girls who we dress are not stereotypical, I don’t want stereotypes, I don’t want to follow what classic fashion dictates.
