New York, NY – Monique Lhuillier debuted her Spring 2015 Runway Collection at New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Friday, September 5th at 7:00pm in The Theatre at Lincoln Center.
Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2015 collection is inspired by the first few moments of sunrise, the instant before the sun rises and paints the sky with luminous shades of pastels. Colors emanate from muted pastel shades in a sunrise sky and the translucent metallic reflections it creates. Soft hues of pink, coral, mint green, sky blue, lavender and pale yellow stand alone as well as combined take on an iridescent dreamlike quality.
From flora to sunrise, painterly landscapes, violet petal prints and delicate floral embroidery leave an ethereal yet playful impression. To create modern elements, noir coated mesh, laminated lace, iridescent metallic piping and liquid satin, keep the collection youthful and sleek. Styles in reflective lamé and shimmering embroidery offer shine and glamour.
Clothes take on volume in design detail of layered organza peplums, structured full skirts, folded necklines and exaggerated sleeves infusing visual intrigue.
Gowns evoke relaxed ease and fresh beauty. The sleekness of scuba column gowns are juxtaposed with abstract bow, patchwork lace and embroidered tulle ball gowns creating an unexpected mix.
The shoe collection features sleek lucite heels in ombre hues of the sunrise
In attendance were Sophia Bush, Hannah Simone, Jamie Chung, Jennifer Morrison, Abigail Spencer, Louise Roe and Perrey Reeves, all dressed in Monique Lhuillier.
