Rabih Kayrouz for his serene, pace-slowing presentation of a new concept honoring the beauty of handicraft showcased its starting point: a series of organic bracelets made from silver, gold and wood. The accessories came presented on a row of slim metal poles that formed a gently curving backbone through his space. In parallel, suspended on racks, were their sartorial echo: a range of jackets, coats and dresses in three fabrics and colors: a wool-cashmere blend, wool and satin, in black, white and red.
“I treated the clothes as objects, piece by piece, as items that can fit perfectly with what I already presented in January,” said Kayrouz of the sculptural creations in minimalist cocoon volumes with cutouts on the sleeves echoing the movement of the skeleton. Other pieces erupted in strong ruffles, but the focus of this discreet collection was more on experiments with construction over embellishment.
