A Treasure Trove of Jewel Tones at Monique Lhuillier

No contributor

For her fall/winter 2015 ready-to-wear collection, Monique Lhuillier, who first made her name with sumptuous wedding gowns, continued her ongoing transition into a combination of luxe daywear and opulent evening dresses. She even added her own accessories to the mix, with a collection of bags and shoes that’s new this season.

Models traipsed down the runway in a palette of jewel tones: emerald, cobalt, ruby, amethyst, and deep aquamarine punctuated by pops of gold and moss and grounded with black, plum, and midnight blue. It was a fusion of masculine and feminine forms: liquid satin and fluttering chiffon juxtaposed with straight-edged tailoring and tuxedo jackets. Prints and textures featured small stars on sheer tulle, floral camo jacquard paired with lace, and jewel-encrusted stockings.

One of our favorite looks featured a black chiffon blouse with gathered neckline and billowing bishop’s sleeves worn with a lace, long-line balconette bra and cobalt floral camo pencil skirt. Where the designer really shined though (both literally and metaphorically), were two twenties-inspired, bead-encrusted evening gowns. The first, a silver drop-waist, featured a lovely art-deco pattern that hugged the model’s form, and the second was a bias-cut gold confection. Rest assured, though Lhuillier has broadened her scope, the unconventional bride might still find her perfect dress here.
