Monique Lhuillier Spring Summer 2013 Collection. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. When I think of Monique Lhuillier I think of feminine, lacey, off-white wedding gowns (which I absolutely die over). I didn't really know what to expect for her ready-to-wear collection. Let me say, I was completely blown away.
Blue is e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e, everyone is doing it, yet she took a fresh approach to it by inviting a metallic navy blue with prints, and this amazing teal throughout the collection.
Many of the runway shows I shot were beautiful, but I did not see a lot of risks taken. This collection, however, really did offer something new. And I have to stop talking about it, so that you can see the collection. Because I am in love...
The show started off with these lovely deep navy prints, leather accents, and collarless blazers...
The below pant suit is what I'm aiming for this spring. I love the peplum top, and the ankle length tailored pant.
I'm sorry amazing navy blue sequins dress, but can I please have you, like now?
What I love about the below gown is it's unexpected from Monique. The clean structure and hint of peplum is something I have not seen in her collections before. Way to be bold Monique!
Words don't express how much I adore the sleeves and romantic lace on the below gowns.
This gold gown really was the perfect finish to what I believe to be a perfect collection by Monique. This collection made me sososo excited to see her new bridal collection next month in NYC for Bridal market!
