Reem Acra Fall 2013

Reem Acra Fall 2013

Reem Acra’s Fall 2013 collection was inspired by a recent trip to Japan and a meeting with artist Daido Moriyama.

The influence was hinted at in the silhouettes and the lavish floral appliqués and embroideries, which were simply breathtaking.

I love how the designer played with volumes and shapes. We saw everything, from the luxuriously oversized to lean and sculpted, ranging from traditional kimonos to streamlined column gowns on a colour palette of mostly black, white and red.

I was quite taken by the tweed kimono coat worn over the ink-dot blouse with a houndstooth skirt for daywear, but it was the gowns I was most delighted to see.

The Lebanese designer, who is a hit with A-listers, served up gorgeous gowns ranging from beaded, embroidered, and figure-hugging to elaborate ball gowns, which should take pride of place on the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre in LA at some point… hopefully very soon.

Front Row: Katherine Heigl, Tinsley Mortimer and Jennifer Creel

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Zhang Ziyi, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Krysten Ritter, Abbie Cornish, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez and Nina Dobrev

Favourites: Look 35, Look 24 and Look 17

    Love: the exquisite Japanese influence in kimono silhouettes, obi belts and embroidery, the drama and the opulence.
    Not feeling: sheerness and plunging necklines.

    Quite a few I’d to see for a photocall or chat show appearance. The was modern Hitchcock woman vibe going on. I love the drama and embroidery of the look 35 gown above.

      I know it’s not her style but I’d love to see Rooney Mara in the look 35 gown.
