NEW YORK — From the moment a bridal or eveningwear shopper enters the gated vestibule leading into Reem Acra’s new 60th Street boutique here, she is enveloped by richness.
Perhaps what makes the richness different from other high-end retailers in the area — Calvin Klein and Barneys New York across the street and Nicole Farhi next door — is the contrast between modern architecture and traditional accents. This same contrast is evident on Acra’s gowns, which offer clean, modern silhouettes and intricate hand-embroidered trims using the line’s signature gold metallic thread.
