Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
One single word played over and over in our minds as each look floated down the garden-like runway at Monique Lhuillier’s show last Friday: lovely. Every single confection is undoubtedly so. The designer was inspired by the first few moments of sunrise, when the pinkish-golden light starts to saturate the world it touches. She took us there. Lhuillier brought her dreamscapes to life for her spring/summer 2015, and we are so happy she did.
As if borrowed directly from the palette of a Degas, pastel shades in a sunrise sky and metallic reflections in hues of soft pink, sky blue, lavender, mint, and pale yellow are primary. Silhouettes are full of volume and delicate design accents with layered organza peplums, structured full skirts, and exaggerated sleeves create visual indulgence. The designer includes a few notable modern elements to this collection with noir coated mesh, laminated lace, and shimmering embroidery. Gowns have an ease about them while still remaining fresh, with intricate details, and hemlines that weren’t favorable to one particular length.
Every look was as lovely as its predecessor, but there is one gown that we are still dreaming about: The iridescent rose lame’ strapless tea length dress with full skirt. Talk about swoon-worthy. It’s everything we love about the 80s but oh, so much more chic.
