Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2018 Collection

It seems that young women are changing the course of fashion. We can’t say that the days of heavy and impractical but stunningly beautiful gowns are over, but we can’t ignore the fact that more and more young women want to feel comfortable in first place. Reem Acra is long enough in the business of fashion to sense the needs of her customers without delay. The Lebanese designer’s Pre-Fall 2018 lineup consists of predominantly eveningwear, but this time she focused on lightness and comfort. She used light fabrics and played with silhouettes and details to preserve her delicate aesthetic.

“This is the trend, lightness. They don’t want to be bothered with heaviness. They want to be able to walk and feel cool,” Acra explained.

The Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2018 collection debuted some unexpected colors as well. The designer involved hard-to-pull-off hues because nowaday’s women are fierce. Besides play-it-safe neutrals, you will find a pop of red, yellow, burned orange, and purple.

To add a bit of contrast Reem Acra used ribbons in array colors. The way she incorporated these pretty details was very flattering and interesting to the eye. In some of the pieces, the designer wrapped her models’ chest and waist for the ultimate “I am the gift” effect. The more toned-down detailing included bows attached to unexpected parts of the dresses. This infused freshness to the designs by giving it a playful note.

For the Pre-Fall 2018 collection, Reem Acra used mostly satin and tulle to create her whimsical dresses. There also a lot of embellishments to add on glamour. But you can still consider most of these dresses comfortable to wear. Take the relaxed tulle embellished dresses for example. The loose silhouettes don’t even touch the body and the fabric is so lightweight that you barely feel it. But these are for sure cocktail and maybe even red-carpet material. Reem Acra paired all the gowns with flat slip on sandals to enhance the relaxed vibe of the collection. Surprisingly, a lot of designers are influenced by the preferences of the young fashion crowd who puts comfort on a pedestal.

Reem Acra is currently busy preparing for the Golden Globes where several celebrities will flaunt her glamorous gowns. Since the Pre-Fall 2018 collection also offers opulent styles, is probably only a question of time when we will see one of these new offerings on the red carpet. For all the other events Reem Acra’s toned-down eveningwear pieces are here to offer comfort and elegance.
