With loose fitting skirt-dresses in silver lamé, a large black belt around the waist, a jumpsuit, floaty asymmetrical gowns or a girly white cotton dress with a claudine collar, rabih kayrouz covers and uncovers the body with hints of sensuality...a ready-to-wear collection teamed with a couture look, made up of simple folds and rounded volumes produced in rectangular shapes. the designer creates only the most detailed and completed perfection but leaves women the freedom to work their own style. interview: rabih kayrouz: i love the clothes and so whether you call them couture or ready-to-wear is up to you, i don’t think it’s important. what interests me is that they are well made, understandable and created with plenty of heart and emotion and ultimately i just want to make a piece of clothing. my history of draping is like drawing; you explore a number of traits and then you multiply and multiply before you narrow it down to just one single element so when i am working if you see my designs there will be three different things as it is a work-in-progress. in the words of picasso; ‘it has taken my whole life to learn to paint like a child’ and it has taken my whole life to try to do nothing to the clothes. everything is based on rectangles from the round dresses to shift dresses; what i enjoyed doing was playing with the rectangles of the fabrics because i don’t like to cut the materials too much and even when i do cut them, i weave the thread of the fabrics and sometimes there were rectangles that formed circles which was interesting, it was like a little game. music from the show
