Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013

Monique Lhuillier has refined the art of the feminine dress. Demure lengths and modest necklines, the leaned-in waistline that delicately creates an hourglass shape, and the invariable presence of a draped mermaid skirt. She makes clothes that we would want to wear; its glamourous yet grounded, hits all the right curves and make a bold style statement without being overdone. 

It's this selective simplicity she brings to her Resort 2013 collection, which takes a stride on the bright and printed side. A Crayola-box of colourful cocktail and evening wear garner attention in acid green, fuchsia, lucent yellow and tangerine. The range is gingered up by abstract floral and paint splatter prints, accentuted by wide leather belts. Monochromatic, empire waist evening gowns are strapless and sophisticated in scalloped lace, and chiffon pleat-draped bodices and fluid skirts. This beautiful collection will surely inspire a new neon bridesmaid trend and be a hit on the summertime party scene.








Would you opt for neon evening wear?

Hi Sam! I will definitely opt for a neon look also in the evening after having seen this collection! Really beautiful! Kisses and have a nice day dear!:*

I love the bright colors andf simplisticity of the first row of dresses as well as the designs of the yellow dresses, just gorgeous! It's nice to see neon will still play a role in some 2013 collections.

A crayola box of colours - I LOVEEE the collection. That floor length pink lace dress is to die for. I rarely love EVERY piece I see of a designers collection for whatever reason, but I adore every single piece here. She sure has perfected her style & the way to show off the feminine and class in a womans body.

The first line with the peach one and all the floral A-line ones, aaaaaalways! Yesterday I bought some floral fabrics to have full skirts sewn!!!! I love them!

Sootjeelina said...

I love all of the maxi-dresses in the 4th picture! But I probably wouldn't wear neon evening wear, it may look amazing on these models, but I I like a classic red, black or dark blue gown more, to be honest. But I would consider wearing a pink dress, because the one in this post looks amazing!

You're always giving me great things to pin, Sam! I love all the bright, neon colors, but I also love the dresses in white too. Monique did an amazing job with this collection.

The Jones said...

I wasn't as impressed with this collection...but did fall totally in love with that evening gown that's on the bottom far left. I'd wear neon, but it would have to be a VERY classic styled gown...like something New Look Dior, but with a funky bright colour :)

I don't usually associate Monique Lhuillier with such bright colours, so this was kind of a surprise. The best kind though...looks so gorgeous! I think the colours are kind of unusual, it looks so fresh! xxx

Adeola Naomi said...

I love all the dresses and pray/hope my fashion silent wish to be fulfilled in some way to just wake up and find them in my closet!
Hm wishful thinking and anyway a girl can dream.
How is your week so far honey? Hope the African winter is not ruining your mood.
