Every year Maison Rabih Kayrouz celebrates Christmas early with an event in its Beirut boutique, giving the Lebanese designer an opportunity to showcase some of the artists he has taken under his wing. This year the event was something more: it was the launch of a book about Yves Saint Laurent's muse and jewelry creator Loulou de la Falaise. At the busy Christmas show, guests and friends mingled over a cozy breakfast table, getting their books signed by De Ravenel, a Paris-based fashion consultant who runs De la Falaise's brand, and checking out Kayrouz's latest creations.The pair were business partners in the fashion line that De la Falaise launched, and De Ravenel brought a collection of the collection's latest accessories from Paris to exhibit in Kayrouz's showroom.At the same time, Kayrouz – a longtime promoter of Lebanese talent – showcased two new young artists, a quintessential part of his yearly Christmas gatherings.The creations of the second artist, set designer Rawan Bazerji, formed the showroom's window display: a tumble of golden steel tubes suspended from the ceiling.
