Lovely. Yes, it was. Costumey? Oh HEAVENS, Yes. Annoying... A Mammoth YES! As with her fellow Lebanese Designers, Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad, Reem Acra cannot let go of the obsession with Silly, Aggravating Trifles of Evening wear as the entirety of her collections. It's Incensing to the point of the Vexatious! And when they are done as Cheap-Looking and Derivative as these for Fall 2015 were, It's Doubly Exasperating!
Again, Many pieces were lovely, no one can discount that, But the great portion, With it's Edwardian/Stevie Nicks/Puffball Leg-O'-Mutton Sleeved/Fairy/Witchy elements felt UBER Played out and Stale as a week old Cruller! Anna Sui does this without even taking a breath, and does it much better AND Offers DAYWEAR! Acra just missed the point by a Million Light Years! Daywear would have helped... but i am beyond preaching now... I can't and Won't give praise to Acra for doing the same Tired Ass Shit that She and Saab and Murad do over and over again Ad Infinitum! They Bore me and the more salient recognizing ought be that by now, after SO MUCH repetition... they should be Boring Themselves!
