Reem Acra RTW Fall 2020

At Reem Acra, fall came with a relaxed, free-spirited bohemian vibe. Aiming to present a versatile collection, approachable for different women, Acra kept the silhouettes uncomplicated and never too body-hugging. Billowing sleeves and flared shapes defined a range of textured silk evening dresses embellished with jewel-like details at the neckline and the cuffs, while caftan-inspired styles were crafted from lush velvet for a cozy effect. Playing with separates, she paired striped ball skirts with coordinated mini vests, as well as soft knits with plissé bottoms in iridescent colors.
WWD Critique: Taking a step back from hyper-embroidered and embellished designs, Acra embraced a new sense of modern elegance that combined simplicity and preciousness.

Reem Acra Resort 2020

“It’s kind of disco, but bohemian at the same time.…Why not go into your evening looking like this?” remarked Reem Acra during a walk-through of her fall collection, pointing to look book images of models clad in her dresses, which she referred to as “couture,” accessorized with new headscarves. “I wanted to show a new way of dealing with couture, and giving it a bit of an edge without going overboard,” Acra said of her designs. In place of fall’s golden armour, the designer debuted a tightly edited, “mini” collection of fresh, Seventies-influenced disco-meets-bohemian dresses for the resort season. 
“All of the drama,” Acra described. Gowns were light as air with tulle trains and capes (both attached or as separates), while even her full beaded offerings held lightness in their pastel palette of lavender, blush and blues against the metallics of silver and gold. Acra’s handwork and meticulous placement of embellishments against her fluid fabrics made for a strong collection, especially when it came to a long-sleeve lavender number with purposely mesh-encased embellished belt — no snagging here. All the opulence and glamour while being free spirited and easy, without the worry.

First Lady Melania Trump Wears Reem Acra for G20 Leaders’ Dinner

With the G20 in full swing, the powers that be gathered Friday night at the leaders’ dinner at Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. First Lady Melania Trump dressed for the occasion in a custom Reem Acra column dress with a vintage belt and metallic pumps. Her yellow diamond stud earrings were chosen to accent the glittery belt. FLOTUS originally selected the dress for another occasion, but it turned out to be better suited for this one, her stylist Hervé Pierre said.
She and Acra, who is based in New York, are “very good friends,” and the designer suited up Trump for a formal dinner the night before last year’s inaugural, the stylist said. Describing Acra as “a dream,” Pierre said, “Designers can be difficult. [laughing] She is really nice.”
Of course, speculation centered on diplomatic relations, especially Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s welcome to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as the overheard informal exchange between the prince and French President Emmanuel Macron. While Trump met with prime minister of India Narendra Modi and Japan’s prime minister Shinzō Abe earlier in the day, the dinner lends itself to more relaxed conversations among world leaders. German Chancellor Angela Merkel had some ground
