Maison Rabih Kayrouz
Rabih Kayrouz, one of Lebanon’s premier haute couture designers, is making a name for himself with his ready-to-wear collection at his boutique in the trendy heart of Achrafieh. Kayrouz splits his time between Paris and Beirut – known as the Paris of the East – and imbues his designs with equal measures of French joie de vivre and Middle Eastern spirit. Salwa, his spring/summer ready-to-wear collection, featured sensual fabrics and rich colours, mixing crepe, mousseline and knits in vibrant green and bright red. Kayrouz’s new 12A10 collection has just about settled on the hangers, so watch out for a whole new Beirut look this winter.
