For any haute couture designer a challenge is not just to deliver the perfect high fashion, haute couture collection but this can be a challenge for ready to wear collections too. This doesn´t have to be a struggle but more darefully colored work. It is interesting to see how ready to wear collections are seen by couturiers and designers that are more on the pret-a-porter side of fashion Olimp. The Reem Acra´s Autumn/Winter 2017 Ready to Wear Collection was the amazing mixture of these both sides of fashion; stunning ensembles very wearable but with huge couture mode.
If you are not familiar by this designer name and her work, Reem Acra is Lebanese designer known for her couture and bridal fashion. The fact that Reem Acra is from the Lebanon puts her immediatelly side to side by more known (well at least to wide fashion fans) Elie Saab or Zuhair Murad. I have to say that they have one thing in common; a very ornamented and delicate aesthetic with huge influence of "la belle couture"! This collection was very the same; stunning pieces like brocade coats with fine embroidery art or whimsical dresses and gowns with big glamour potential but still in ready to wear range.
The already mentioned brocade texture was the creative leading trace of this collection presented in form of simple editorial. The opulence which has come with this material was inspiring for more stiff and volume enriched silhouettes. The stiff ones were on the accentuated waists gowns and the more voluminous were in the shape of strong sculptued coats. These two facts were common thing to all of the clothing pieces, and here the total collective resemblance stops. The prints were very original. Every item had it own printed story with luxury points as well as with colors. From gray to baby pink; the spectrum was wide.
This collection offered the style versatile of Reem Acra. It showed that she is brave enough to show all of her inner creative strides. And all of that brought in the most stunning pieces ful of delicate and refined femininity. We can not wait for new amazing style "kaleidoscope" by Reem Acra. It will be spectatcular, for sure!
