Monique Lhuillier Spring/Summer 2014

At the top of my list of favourites from New York Fashion Week so far is the enthralling Spring 2014 collection by Monique Lhuillier. The LA-based designer manifested the idea of 'sheer elegance' in a spectacular array of saturated shades from poppy red, fuchsia, coral, orchid and orange. The fiery palette was doused with misty hues of almond, cream, white and rose gold.  

Daywear was introduced by way of chicly fitted pencil skirts, outlined in delicate Chantilly lace, with sophisticated blouses that boasted detachable crystal collars. Sheer pastel organza tunics were layered over cropped tops, skirts and trousers, all highlighted by silver metallic thread. 

Monique reigns supreme when it comes to evening wear, with a feminine display of resplendent gowns that any starlet would be lucky to wear on the red carpet. The showstopper is a hot pink bandeau in silk gazaar, paired with a dramatic tangerine ballroom skirt (7.) I am certain stylists will be fighting over this one. Floor-sweeping cerise and mandarin chiffon and silk linen gowns ignited the runway, leaving a glamourous blaze in it's wake. 

Balancing out the brights were a regalia of ethereal ivory and muted gold gowns, airily whisked up from tulle in graceful silhouettes. Organza flowers and glimmering beads braided their way across the diaphanous midi and maxi dresses. Closing the show were a canvas of swirling skirts painted with floral brush strokes...a fervent end to an outstanding collection.

My favourites from this range is the interestingly contrasted coral asymmetrical dress and poker red pants in Set 1, and the coral and lace gown (second image in 8). Which are yours?

Morning Sam! You are right, this is one of my fav as well so far, with also Donna Karan. Btw, talking about Monique Lhuillier what I love most are the wovens, the lace, the embellishments, the patterns and the colors used, all together recreate a sophisticated and feminine elegance, a sheer elegance as you said very well. My fav looks are the fuchsia dress in set 2, the white ones in set 4 and 5, and the nectarine in Set 3, they all are dreamy!:) Have a great day dear, kisses! xo

Coco said...

I love the vibrant colours, the corals and reds and the magnificent gowns. If I must pick a favourite, it's the first from left of set 7! Happy Tuesday darling Sam!

I agree - this collection is exquisite! I love the vibrant pinks, oranges and reds, and how they transitioned seamlessly into whites and neutrals by keeping the bright lipstick and nail polish. So fresh!

Monique is a genius and her collections are always right up my alley: so elegant, feminine and glamorous! I'm pretty much smitten with every single gown, and I just wish my funds were unlimited, so I could splurge on one of these dresses (or three :)

Have a lovely Wednesday, sweetie!

The collection looks totally marvelous. Actually I love every single piece. Would be nice to have one of the dresses at home (not that I'd have an occasion to wear it). The second dress (Set 8) is one of my favorites too and the last two pics of Set 9. I wonder if we'll see any celebrities with these looks. Have a wonderful day Sam!!

Oh, I see a couple of gowns stylist will be fighting over! The first one from the last set (my favorite), the colorblocking skirt and crop top from the 7th set and almost all of the dresses from the set 6.:) I really like the bold ones better thought...
