Monique Lhuillier - Keep it simple, yet fresh. Feminine, but sharp
See Lookbook
Iíve become used to designers throwing their tried and true aesthetic down the drain for the mass market. Itís become more common to design for sales, than designing for the art. And when fashion becomes a consistency of premium bags from different houses, looking exactly the same. Or collection pieces from various shows appearing strikingly similar to seasons past, or dare I say, anotherís brand, it turns fashion week into melancholic obligation. But Monique Lhuillier, among others, make the experience well worth the wait. This FW14 season, Lhuillier kept it simple, yet fresh. Feminine, but sharp. She created separates that could be dressed up or down, in safe enough color palettes that print-on-print wouldnít look garish. While her gowns were of aristocratic style Ė sexy, regal, and well crafted. Lhuillierís FW14 collection wasnít the prized cow, by any means, but it was ribbon worthy.
