The first monograph honoring Rabih Kayrouz, this book reveals the designer’s multicultural inspirations and his ambition to bridge the worlds of couture and ready-to-wear. Lebanese-born, Paris-based designer Rabih Kayrouz is a recognized fashion innovator thanks to his masterful tailoring and minimalist-meets-haute couture flair. After studying couture and stints at Chanel and Dior, Kayrouz founded his namesake house in 1999 and was soon called upon by Beirut society, Middle Eastern royalty, and international fashionistas for his wearable yet luxurious designs.
As unique as his creations, this debut volume features Swiss binding and two separate books contained within one volume: the first book explores his design ethos through fascinating texts, and the second is dedicated entirely to photographs of emblematic silhouettes, powerful colors, and seductive materials. A fresh look inside a thoroughly innovative brand, this book celebrates the courage to push contemporary design boundaries.
