Runway Favourite S/S 09: Reem Acra RTW

Reem Acra drew inspiration for her Spring/Summer collection from the ideas of a fairytaile and a royal castle. The look was less princess and more electric Taj Mahal – which was a fresh take on the normally glam look. Her collection was great, with an array of vibrant colours, and sparkling embellishment, giving hope and a dreamlike quality to those worried with the world. Here are some of my favourite pieces from the latest show by Reem Acra.

reemacra-printsPrints were a big part of this season’s runways, and Reem Acra showed some gorgeous prints in her collection. Either bold and shiny, or subtle and artistic, these pieces are all wonderful. I especially love the watercolour look on the white dress (center), as well as the far right picture.

Her no-holds barred approach to the colour palette is wonderful, giving almost every colour a chance. My favourites? The sexy orange dress that will get you notice at any party, and the green shirtdress that’s soft yet fun.
