Midday, on a riviera far away,
Bright blue summer sky,
A few clouds just passing…

A woman walks, wind blowing through her hair,
Across the remains of modern times.

Elegant,
Free,
Almost defiant.

Clothes effortlessly wrapped around her,
Freeing her body.

Primary colours reminiscent of the South,
Recall the imprint of a first painting.

Textures are deep, solid.
Shimmering fabrics blend with matte,
Cool wool mixes with Jersey.
New archetypes come to enhance the MRK wardrobe.

Pea jacket, trench coat, windcheater.
Wardrobe for day and evening.

Giving space for
Movement,
Power,
Vibrancy.

Giving space for freedom.

Maison Rabih Kayrouz is pleased to unveil an exclusive collaboration with ERES. The designer Rabih Kayrouz and Marie-Paule Minchelli, director of the ERES studio and collections, have created a summer collection, to be worn at the beach or in the city, which perfectly combines both savoir-faire of the Maisons: the iconic ready-to-wear creations of Maison Rabih Kayrouz and the ERES expertise in the world of swimwear. Thus, each shares its own universe, history and a common aspiration: to magnify women's bodies with timeless, delicate and emotional pieces.

A brand new collection composed of four swimsuits and six ready-to-wear pieces.

She walks, decisive
Fragile and strong, she does not falter
Exuding love and pride
Moved by her past
Inspired by her future
Embracing the present
Structured dresses
Jackets and coats
With sharp, uncompromising cuts
Movement and poise
The ornament is an integral part of the fabric
Ebony, brandy, poppy and marigold tones
Dazzling vinyl, brocade and embroideries
Elongated silhouettes in pants, skirts, dresses and shorts
Soft and sensual, she bewitches us
She strolls through the city
She takes us out dancing on a winter evening
She glows and radiates warmth

She leaves on a whim
Takes her suitcase and flies away
Dressed for the city
Dressed for travel
Dressed for a party
Prepared for any situation
To walk through foreign streets
To venture forth on a safari
To dance under the stars
Her bag contains every key piece
Cape and trench-coat
Must-have jackets: workwear, safari or tuxedo
Bermuda shorts and wide-leg trousers
Blouses, polo and regular shirts

Stiff textures and supple fabrics
Poplin, taffeta, oriental lame, reworked denim
Shades of beige, white and blue
Pops of pink and yellow
Feline prints, twinkling diamanté
Dressed sewn in a single gesture
To wrap the body like a cloud
Ready to be the Belle of the ball


Spring Summer 2022 Collection
Video directed by NASRI SAYEGH

"Les Essentiels" enters Haute Couture and becomes "Les Exceptionnels". The fine wool jacket is transformed into a tuxedo with a revealing back. The double gabardine trench coat elongates, embroidered with memories. The "petites mains" unravel the fabric into fringes, underlining the cotton gauze dress.

The dress in silk tulle reveals locked memories. The cashmere coat is dramatized coming alive with the velvet bangs. Clothes, objects, all are intertwined, treasured and passed on.

The MRK spirit for Winter 2021?

“Cocoon” garments to reassure and protect.

Wrap-around coats, capes and generous trench-coats reflect the MRK touch.

Streamlined trouser suits.

Skirts, trousers and shirts… to adopt forever and mix according to the moment.

Super comfortable knitwear with a graphic silhouette.

And always, the house codes: blouses and dresses in flowing charmeuse, graphic poplin for shirts, architectural dresses, clever tailoring…

Tactile fabrics: velvet, brocade, woolens, double gabardine…

A luminous palette: bright greens, blues and reds combined with the classic black and white.

The extraordinarily violent blast of August 4, 2020 left our magnificent boutique entirely destroyed. And Rabih himself seriously injured. Thankfully, after a few months of convalescence, he is on his way to a full recovery.

Despite the shock and the sadness, we have been determined to rebuild and restore the beauty and the magic of this place. We are committed to our amazing Beirut team, and more than ever we want to support the creativity of our Beirut ateliers.

While we cannot know for certain when the boutique will be operational again, we have set up a temporary boutique and atelier, a stone’s throw from 320 rue Gouraud.

Thanks to the strength and resourcefulness of our local team, a smaller albeit charming venue has been redecorated and can welcome our clients and friends, whose loyalty and support has been the most beautiful gift in this troubled period.
Our boutique at 320 Rue Gouraud is being rebuilt and will re-open more magnificent than ever – we will make sure to update you as and when it is ready - stay tuned!

What if Beirut and Paris were hanging by a thread, a drawing, a mouvement, a line, a grain?

In Beirut, the dress is dreamt, imagined, conceived, sketched, drawn. In Paris, it takes shape, comes to life, gets woven. Alive, playful, orange-red.

More than a simple unveiling of a dress, 320/38 is an invitation into the intimate creative world of Rabih Kayrouz. Unable to be next to his creation – a few 4.168,33 km apart – the designer, while in 320 Gouraud Street, Beirut, conjures distance by using his pen, his hands, his vision; aesthetics that will later be fulfilled in 38 Boulevard Raspail, Paris.

There, in Beirut, the "sublime petites mains", caressed by the morning light, weave an imaginary gros grain, like a thin thread which will materialize in a studio flooded with the light of a Parisian afternoon.

In Beirut, this sample.
In Paris, this creation.
Color erupts.
