The designer that brings royalty back to life through the dreamy gowns she creates has returned, but this time leaning on a more laid-back direction as she launches her 2016 ‘Ready to Wear’ collection.
It will not be Reem Acra without the flares and the beadings. The intricacy of craftsmanship and the modern take on classic designs are some of the qualities why this Lebanese designer has captured the attention of the international fashion market. Her company which is known for making unique bridal gowns has evolved ever since it started back in 1997.
If dressing two of the most powerful women in the world like Madonna and Angelina Jolie isn’t enough, then royals from all over the world will attest to how fine and beautiful her designs are. And as the New Year comes in, the RTW line that the brand started in 2008 will continue to flourish in the closets of tasteful and elegant women all over the world when it comes to picking the clothes that reflect them.
The latest RTW collection is a confession of where this designer came from. See Middle Eastern inspired prints that grace each piece from jumpsuits to dresses. Busy designs as they are, the designer successfully incorporated jovial hues while respecting a woman’s body as they fit well to define a woman’s curves. Embroidery will still be present – as this is the main characteristic of garments found in the region where she was raised.
Belts also dominated the show. The inspiration is simple – it is derived from the people that the designer comes across whenever she pays a visit to flea markets all over the world.
The low and deep V-necks are in line with current trends making waves everywhere. Overall, more than a tribute to Lebanon and its neighboring countries, the collection essentially has a bohemian vibe in a cool and classy way.
