Marking a poetic Paris debut, Lebanese couturier Rabih Kayrouz’s collection focused on sculptural gowns and jackets with artisanal flourishes, such as hand-stitched seams or pleating.

Highlights included a stone gray silk gazar gown with arty frayed effects around the seams, meant to emulate shadows. An interesting addition to the diminishing Paris couture circuit, the collection proved an airy and earthy ode to Mediterranean handiwork.
