Monique Lhuillier Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

The Monique Lhuillier spring/summer 2016 collection sends two messages – it’s empowering elegance and feminine sophistication and it encourages embracing the arrival of spring with pops of juicy colors. It was a lush and classy line-up of 39 eternally chic evening designs featuring buoyant youthful shapes with hints of modesty and vintage allure. With a star-studded front row including such honorable names as Ashley Madekwe, Bella Thorne and other celebrities, and a collection delivering lust-worthy evening numbers, Monique’s fashion show was definitely a success and we can’t wait to see some of these eye-popping pieces gracing various red carpet events to come. Spring is all about drastically ditching all the winter blues experimenting with invigorating colors and pretty feminine designs and with Monique Lhuillier the transition from winter to spring can be so much more flawless.

Monique never shies away from bold colors, but her spring collection goes over the top in terms of the quantity of vivid shades used. This, however, never appears too much, or if it does, we want to follow the rule of more is more this spring. Unleash your inner playful and daring self and inject a pop of color into your wardrobe playing with all those reds, emerald greens, lilacs, oranges, fuchsias and blues, if you want to look as cool as the models at Monique Lhuillier did. And just in case you still want to stick to your favorite neutral color palette, the collection also incudes a couple of polished black and white looks, such as the pleated tea-length skirt matched with a form-fit white top tucked underneath, the sleeveless black dress with a side slit that flashed just the right amount of skin, covering most of the leg with a white fabric popping behind the slit, or the three closing looks – one being a white evening dress with red floral embellishments on the top part, the second one looking so ethereal thanks to the use of see-through organza adorned with floral appliqués and the final look combining white and black colors and being the perfect fit for ladies appreciating reserved elegance.

Still, the main theme of the Monique Lhuillier spring 2016 line-up was the “youth”, therefore we were treated to an abundance of little cocktail dresses made of white guipure lace and jacquard fabric and spiced up with colorful floral appliqués, color-blocked looks composed of guipure pencil skirts and crop tops worn over crisp white shirts, knee-length dresses and drop-dead gorgeous boldly colored tailored pants or floor-length skirts teamed with structured sleeveless and asymmetric hemline tunics. Pleats and bright splatter prints were other major design techniques used, the latter of which came in a big dose making into the lightweight summer dresses, the cocktail looks and the top matched with the tailored shorts. Colorful short fur capes beautifully topped some of the looks to provide warmth on cooler nights, but overall, it was a pretty summer-y collection with lightweight fabrics and warm-weather-appropriate shapes.

The accessories used throughout the Monique Lhuillier spring 2016 fashion show were equal eye-poppers coming to match the outfits they were complementing to perfection. She used embellished or more minimalist bow-detail sandals, Lucite wedges, tiny bags and clutches with pretty details, and bright necklaces added here and there.
