His haute couture designs have delighted the front row for almost a decade and now, as Maison Rabih Kayrouz prepares to celebrates the 10th anniversary of his eponymous brand, the designer has unveiled his debut bridal collection. The Lebanese couturier, who founded his label in 2009 following stints at Dior and Chanel, has dreamt up a modern yet utterly romantic concoction of gowns and separates for the contemporary bride.
Minimal, structured, ankle-sweeping dresses are timeless in their simplicity, while elegantly pared-back midi designs will provide a sartorial solution for brides looking for something relaxed yet refined. Ethereally delicate fabrics and fluid silhouettes imbue voluminous, feather-light cuts with a dainty femininity, and a selection of insouciantly slouchy – yet expertly tailored – separates can introduce a touch of power suiting to any nuptials. With exquisite attention to detail and a exploration of proportions and cuts, the result is a collection that is wearable, a touch whimsical, and wholly suited to brides seeking something different from the run-of-the-mill gowns.
“I created my first wedding dress 20 years ago for a Lebanese client,” the designer tells Vogue Arabia of the launch. “Since then, many brides have looked to adapt my designs for their big day. This collection is an opus of my work and the beginning of a new chapter.”
The Maison Rabih Kayrouz La Mariée collection will be sold exclusively at L’Éclaireur, a Parisian multi-brand store on Rue Boissy d’Anglas. Scroll through the gallery about to discover more from the debut bridal line.
