We are not certain whether the Reem Acra girl only goes out at night, but that seems to be what this gorgeous, glamorous, nightlife-oriented collection is suggesting.
When the sun goes down, the parties start up, and Reem Acra is outfitting you in a wardrobe worthy of Studio 54 at its peak. Even the beauty look is nailed to the 70s disco era, with hair as big and as wonderful as Diana Ross’ and a wardrobe as sleek and on point as Michelle Pfeiffer’s in Scarface. The show launches with a slinky side-strapped dress featuring a blast of silver rays bursting across the front – a start that seems to suggest that it’s all fête fun from here. Gleaming halter-neck short dresses and breezy sheer separates accented with strategically placed paillette embroidery lead us straight to a cadre of gorgeous houndstooth-on-houndstooth looks that possess a hypnotic visual allure. The collection explodes with polka-dot chiffon gowns, one-shoulder dresses, cutout bodices, and sparkling textures that bring a baseline of throbbing sensuality to the whole display. Reem Acra tackles unapologetic glamour, and it works. For Spring/Summer 2014, transform yourself into a modern day Bianca Jagger or Jerry Hall, and taste the thrill of never-ending nightlife.
