Gorgeous materials and intricate beadwork are ordinarily reserved for eveningwear, but there was nothing ordinary about Reem Acra’s Spring ’07 collection. The title of the show was “Then + Now,” but perhaps “Gilded” would be more appropriate. In a season that the designer has described as “all about fusion,” she layered her favorite daywear pieces together and glazed them with fine finishes, chunky goldwork and opulent jewels.

cra must have traded a few notes with Ralph Lauren for spring, as both designers featured silver lame look-alike separates to add class and attitude to an outfit. Acra’s color story continued in a metallic vein, with bronze, moonstone, mauve and a variety of taupes gracing the runway. Bright red continues to reign as the chosen pop color for spring- a Peter-Pan collared coat made entirely of rouge ribbons and a pleated red chiffon gown served as collection standouts for Reem Acra. As for silhouettes, the look was soft, yet somewhat boxy, and waistlines ranged from dropped to natural to empire, varying incredibly from look to look.

FIT-trained Reem Acra has established herself in the designer bridal business for a decade, dressing stars like Christina Applegate and Melissa Joan Hart for their eddings. Her Spring ’07 collection proved her talent for unexpectedly elegant daywear looks, so look forward to more fun dressing for the office with Reem Acra.
