For Spring 2014 Reem Acra takes inspiration from nighttime celebrations. The Reem Acra woman is a sophisticated, international downtown party goer, dressing mostly in black though illuminated by sparkling ornamentations and light-reflecting embroideries that evoke the night sky as if lit by fireworks. Balancing today’s fast-paced, global schedule, the Reem Acra woman goes from daytime dressing to gala evening events with a sophisticated ease of style.
A spontaneous clarity, the experimental effects of transparency, masterful layering of chiffon, and overlapping patterns result in fabrics that are as light as the air and create an electrifying quality of movement. Blasts of red, liquid gold, and printed silks break through the dark. Whether short or long, it is all about the dress this season and each look sets the scene for a glamorous event.
Acra makes a statement with her daywear and even there her empire pantalon ample is a nod to the dress. The use of metallic golds and silvers, are also a Reem Acra signature, weaved throughout the collection. With distinct and fresh silhouettes, Acra’s chic and effortless gowns are both lean and voluminous inviting the wearer and her admirers to revel in sumptuous yet cool, edgy elegance. The overall result captures the energetic feeling of the night.
As we get ready for bridal market, I wonder if the layering of fabrics will make an appearance for the 2014 bride? We’ll find out shortly.
