TICKET TO THE TENTS: Reem Acra Fall 2013 Collection

Thursday, February 14, 2013

This is going to sound funny, but I'm a big fan of Reem Acra because of her name alone! Ha, for some reason her name sounds like the name of fabric to me, and I think it's perfect for fashion! Has anyone else thought this too when you've heard the name Reem Acra or is just me?

Collection Review
Reem Acra, when asked what her inspiration was for the current season, said she fell in love with Japan. The Japanese inspired floral embroidery was beautiful, but it was the works of Daidō Moriyama, known for his grainy black and white images of women in fish net stocking and the second inspiration mentioned that really shined through. The look was seductive and sensual, but the impeccable tailoring and styling kept it far away from offensive. It seemed like the wardrobe of a long gone kind of woman. It was Tippi Hedron in The Birds or Eva Marie Saint in North by Northwest, very Hitchcock femme fatale.

The incredibly simple color palette of red, black, white and grey kept everything to the point and laser focused. The numerous dresses, including a show stopping all leather sheath dress with twist knot detailing, could easily work into a woman’s business wardrobe or serve as a cocktail dress. The red and black fur coats were a bit over the top, but the herringbone and plaid print coats added some sensibility. The evening wear pieces made great use of sheer fabrics, illusion fabrics and strategically placed appliques to evoke demure sexy.
