“Moved by her past, inspired by her future, and embracing the present,” is how Lebanese designer Rabih Kayrouz describes the wearer of his latest designs. In the lookbook, this is represented by the models who are almost cloaked in darkness as they step into the light.

Unveiled at a Rive Droite apartment alongside Paris couture week, the 38-piece Maison Rabih Kayrouz Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear collection puts strong tailoring at its core through the use of the right fabric and construction. “Sharp, uncompromising cuts” are made to materials like vinyl and thick jersey to make structured dresses, jackets, and coats. In a display of skilled construction, the designer did away with padding, instead sculpting curves and creating volume by pattern-making. One of the gowns uses rope of varying lengths stitched in rings between layers of tulle to create a couture-like shape, while seams are rendered to the front, back, and sleeves of jackets to elevate them to an architectural form. Pieces range from daywear to eveningwear, in a neutral-heavy color palette with pops of bright orange and the shades of poppy and marigold mirrored in a floral print.
Take a look at the best pieces from the Maison Rabih Kayrouz Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear collection below.
