For designers like Reem Acra, fashion week might’ve fallen a little too close to the Oscars this year. Acra’s Fall dresses were already on a plane to Los Angeles just hours after her Monday night runway show. The hope, presumably, is that a star will make one of them hers for the evening.
The designer began the season by referencing Stevie Nicks’ Polaroid self-portraits from the mid-’70s. Acra started things off short and sweet with a high-neck silver-beaded number, worn under an embroidered blush pink mink coat. (The fur looked like velvet.) An asymmetrical sheer embroidered skirt and matching blouse were paired with a faille silk jacket, which was tied at the waist with an emerald-colored velvet string. Embroidered velvet cape coats topped little lace numbers, and feathers decorated the shoulders of a green velvet peasant dress. As for the gowns, it was all about the high necks and bejeweling. A body-skimming lace style was embroidered with silver sequins, its intricate beading arranged thoughtfully on a sheer panel traveling down the front. The final look, a long-sleeved white lace gown with a cape back, was the right idea for an equally boho starlet.
