Reem Acra Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Nobody can perfect the art of creating luxurious evening gowns as well as the Lebanese do. The fifth day of New York Fashion Week spring 2015 brought us a proof of that. To get inspiration for the newest Reem Acra spring/summer 2015 collection, the designer is said to have looked at French couturiers, trying to design a collection with a touch of mid 1900s fashion, although we have to admit that some outfits in the collection show way too much skin, something which the fashion norms of the 1950s would probably not allow. This, however, does not make the Reem Acra spring/summer 2015 collection any less appealing, as Acra has managed to modernize the fashion style of mid-century designers. “I wanted to imagine that woman [the woman of 1950s] today. What would she be wearing?” said the designer before unveiling her new collection.

The new Reem Acra spring/summer 2015 collection went beyond our expectations; the pieces were feminine, elegant and chic. It was also very glossy and shimmery. What we noticed about Reem Acra’s new collection was the multiplicity of dress necklines. We saw a wide range of off-shoulder A-line dresses reaching below knees with stripes of cutouts up on the front, dresses sprinkled with silky embroidered patterns, deep V-neck knee length shimmery dresses, white dresses with cutouts up on the front paired with baby blue jackets and so on. An array of silky dresses featured twist necklines; some of the dresses were even completely designed on twisting principle showing as much skin as probably a bikini top would. One-shoulder dresses, made of a sheer and silky fabric were also presented at the show. With some of one-shoulder dresses, the designer had tried to create a balance by showing more of the leg that was opposite to the shoulder that was covered. It all looked very well-planned and graceful. Plunged neckline dresses were yet another proof of the designer’s creativity and bravery.

Unlike the first part of the show, the second part featured a number of maxi dresses with high waisted skirts. But the one thing that the dresses presented at the first part of the show had in common with these dresses, was the scarce amount of fabric used to design the tops. Most of the dress tops were strapless showing the gorgeous shoulders of the models. Others had unique cutouts shaped like inverted triangles on the torso area. The last part of the show brought to us more “innocent” outfits: figure hugging maxi dresses with portrait necklines and shimmery prints. Reem Acra is also a designer of bridal pieces and her last dresses presented during New York Fashion Week show reminded us of the bridal dresses the designer created not long ago.
The color palette of the Reem Acra spring/summer 2015 collection was very diverse as well: we had combinations of black and silver, pale yellow and silver, light blue and white, light pink and light coral, coral and baby blue (what a perfect color combination, don’t you think?) and so on. It was a win-win line, for sure!
