Reem Acra Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
Structured sophistication reigned supreme in Reem Acra's Fall 2019 line. It was a fabulous array of evening looks, some more modern than others, that touched upon classic codes of femininity with modern sensibilities! Though women might have a difficult time maneuvering such heavy (literally) frocks!

Joan of Arc seems the least likely muse to ever inspire an extremely feminine and romantic fashion designer, but Reem Acra couldn’t help but be transfixed by the historical figure. In her Fall 2019 collection, Acra highlighted Joan’s strength and youth, putting forth an array of evening options that are contemporary yet structured at the same time. Case in point was a well-constructed ball outfit—it wasn’t a gown per se, but a combination of a corseted floral top and a shimmering satin bronze pouf skirt. Though the styling here was sort of old-school, the idea of two pieces paired together to form an elegant illusion of one-piece was a modern idea in of itself. Things got a little too sculptural with the actual one-piece evening gowns, particularly a strapless burgundy number in cascading floor-length frills and another dark teal number in bouffant ruffles. Perhaps the most noteworthy dress, a classically-shaped golden ballgown, was the most ageless and awe-inspiring of the lot. However, it was extremely heavy, and like many other pieces in this line, it fitted a museum mannequin more than it would an actual woman. Still, the beauty of this Reem Acra line was undeniably divine!
