Monique Lhuillier has just surprised us with an experimental pre-fall 2017 collection many will surely find utterly adorable and, if not, at times even haute couture-esque.
Mostly known for her floor-length, fairytale-like gowns, as well as for her jaw-dropping bridal collections, Monique Lhuillier decided to focus on separates for her Monique Lhuillier pre-fall 2017 collection, proving it is always a good idea to experiment with fashion and open up new (fashion) horizons.
While browsing through the collection, finding tuxedo pants and bolero jackets might be kind of unusual, as we rarely see Lhuillier create fashion statements through separates. The outcomes, as of now, have received numerous praises and positive comments worldwide.
The collection features both daytime and nighttime staples, although the overall allure is that of a resort, party-ready line-up that is anything but ordinary. Thanks to a coherent continuum of staples, Monique Lhuillier presented her pre-fall 2017 collection starting off from the most wearable garments, which can be easily mixed and matched with one another. Although being day-to-day pieces, all of them feature signature elements that revamp their aesthetics with something unique and high-end, such as structured butterfly sleeves on bolero jackets and layered frills on Schiaparelli pink midi dresses.
After treating us to something fancy for every day, Lhuillier takes us for a night out with friends, overwhelming us with an abounding amount of staples that really feature something for every taste, from glittery cropped pants to see-through blouses.
Although black is the dominating color in this second part of the Monique Lhuillier pre-fall 2017 collection, the Philippines-born fashion designer dipped some of her proposals into bright shades of white and pink, too, even embellishing some of the gowns with her signature delicate floral patterns.
The third and last part of the collection, on the other hand, is definitely all about formal events and red carpet-ready ensembles, among which the separates don’t dominate the scene anymore. Those who love signature Lhuillier garments will particularly fancy this third part of the lineup, as it exudes old-time classic vibes indeed.
Although she did not focus on a single decade while designing her pre-fall 2017 collection, unlike most of her fellow colleagues, Monique Lhuillier did apply a few Twenties and Thirties-inspired elements to her last pieces, such as drop-waist figures and feathery appliqués.
Gemstones, slightly structured shoulders and Hollywood-approved details also helped the Monique Lhuillier pre-fall 2017 collection’s very last statement pieces exude their ultimate haute couture vibes, the patterns of which will likely become an almost intrinsic part of this upcoming 2017 fashion year.
