Monique Lhuillier is a very successful American glam gown designer who loves deluxe fabrics. Spring 2014 is dedicated to delicately balanced textures, innovative layering and sophisticated ease. A rich color palette of coral, fuchsia and red pop against neutrals like cream, soft rose gold and nude.
For day, textured organza with metallic threading offers a glimpse of cropped bandeaus while lace tunic dresses and pencil skirts skim below the knee. Silhouettes range from a palazzo pant romper to a lace sweater with removable embellished collar.
Evening gowns evoke ease and elegance. Rich chocolate brown replaces black in ombrÃ© chiffon with regal draping. Separates, like ball gown skirts and cropped bandeaus, are a new interpretation of traditional eveningwear.
The shoe collection features gladiator sandals and pump-sandal hybrids in matte leather and soft suede. Signature architectural details are offset by the introduction of studs and two-tone styles, in a bright coral and chocolate combo.
