Rabih Kayrouz - Women's Fall/Winter 2014/15 Collection in Paris (with itw)

East meets West, an important intermix at Rabih Kayrouz who adores clothes that coil around the body like a bathrobe, with pockets throughout, plus a burnous cape. This couturier always strives to maximize the simplicity of cuts by avoiding stitching, exemplified perfectly on this draped bustier dress in marine blue, or a navy silk djellaba. Stoles are also highly present, the shoulders bedecked with silk ruffles. Oriental gold, appearing throughout this collection, is printed and quilted. On the feet: golden woven boots worn with ankle socks.Interview:Rabih Kayrouz:Every season, I create a story and this time it was all about the desire to come out of a Hammam, which are cultural meeting points like Paris and it all clicked and I was inspired whilst strolling the streets of Paris and I called the collection ‘Batroun-Barbès’; Batroun is a village in North Lebanon where I spent all my holiday and where you are wrapped up in your towel all day and Barbès because they dress in this incredible style with impossible blends and I wanted to showcase this.I love to cut and to wrap and to cut in the same way, very clearly and precisely, even when I coil things and I do cocoon dresses, there is only one stitch, movement is very frank and direct in the cut and when I also cut in a very candid way.
