North African hammam met Seattle circa 1992 at Maison Rabih Kayrouz's fall-winter 2015 fashion show Sunday afternoon. Lebanese ready-to-wear designer Rabih Kayrouz presented a collection during Paris Fashion Week based on the burnous, a hooded, wool cloak found in North African countries. With fabric and pattern choices, Kayrouz turned that traditional garb into Moroccan grunge with lots of plaid and deep, hoodie-like pockets. Burnouses are often associated with Berber tribal dress, and the cloaks were incorporated into colonial military uniforms in parts of North Africa. Other looks by Kayrouz adopted elements of Arab dress, the most startling of which was an oversized hooded scarf worn like a balaclava.
