Fall 2005 Collections

The Reem Acra Fall 2005 collection is inspired by the urban gypsy. She travels from Bombay to St. Tropez. She loves the Mediterranean seaside and the world's best flea markets. Her wardrobe is a unique multi-cultured jewel that mirrors her own personal style.

Acra's Fall 2005 collection, a kaleidoscope of colors, in copper, iridescent blue, gold, bordeaux, and fuchsia. Bold bright floral and snakeskin prints are played out in unique shapes and unusual combinations. Easy sportswear bodies are interpreted in luxurious fabrics such as silk chiffon, brocade, tulle, lace and velvet.

A brocade quilted parka is worn over a printed flirty tulle skirt. A gold lame belted trench coat can go right from the tarmac to a cocktail party. Short sequin or tulle jackets dazzle over evening looks or jeans. The true Bohemian will not be able to resist the gold macrame short skirt with lace top or the look of a lavishly embroidered tulle tunic worn over a velvet or lame pant.

For those seeking the drama and over the top embellishment of Acra's little dance dresses and long evening gowns she does not disappoint. Her short bordeaux lace slip dress with gold overlay and her antique embroidered black velvet chemise are made for boogie nights. The long ivory tulle gown with its embroidered flowers in shades of fuchsia finished off with a ruffled gypsy underskirt, the black beaded slip gown over nude and the show stopping gold lame plunge gown once again remind us that Acra is at the top of her game.
