Maison Rabih Kayrouz

The catwalk was made from white sand for this show and the models barefoot to accentuate the beach side feel.
Again following summer trends wide brimmed hats Loose sleeves hung in a nod to fishermen and nautical themes.
The wide Quaker like hats were modernised with straight stiff brims and a band of gold metal across the head.

Sheer inserts in cotton dresses showed just how loose the garments were and how broad the silohuette was. Hanging t-short dresses and delicate chiffon gowns were juxtaposed with clinical tailoring in stark cotton.

Waists bore shelves of frothy peplums with an over stated paper bag waist bands and draw string waists. Again a nod to the nautical themes.

Delicate pleating was shown again following a seaside theme and channelling coral formations.

Fluid chiffon evening dresses with waterfall draping fell softly and trailed hems softly still contrasting with tailored jackets and waist coats.

Colours started with black, white, navy and taupe with the occasional sunny flash of mustard yellow. Tones were generally muted and the story greys again channel frothy waves breaking. Prints were not present at all and the only pattern clear was through pleating.

The collection was accessorised with plate metal jewellery in gold to add a modern vibe while lips were painted a strong coral orange. Belts of thick metal rope sat lightly on the waist not quite cinching but holding the form.

The ocean themes were obvious and the fluid fabrics vs strong tailoring were possibly a nod to the collision of land and sea. It was a calming show, relaxing and consistent.
