Fearless Floral Femmes at Maison Rabih Kayrouz Spring/Summer 2015
Though still fairly new to the ready-to-wear scene, Rabih Kayrouz made a strong statement with his free-flowing, asymmetrical clothing, a fusion of his French apprenticeship and Lebanese background.
The show, which took place at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, was a celebration of women who approach life with an air of effortlessness. Dresses in this show were made of chiffon, silk and smooth polyester, paired with belts and extra-chic drapes of fabric.
Kayrouz explained his vision in an interview with Paris Modes Productions: “What I really like is this idea of a woman who likes to go out of her district, out of her cocoon and is not afraid of anything. She doesn’t need anything artificial, just things that make her stronger or even freer. I didn’t want to do anything too detailed or too structured, but at the same time not something that went in all directions.”
A daring red rose print also made an appearance on the shift dress, jacket and blouse, and managed to remain tasteful: “Floral fabric is dangerous because it’s very difficult to work with, and it can quickly turn out to become something tacky and I loved this little challenge because it’s that which pleases me and to play with something that’s between good and bad.”
