Time for elegance in New York Fashion Week! Monique Lhuillier unveils her spring/summer 2014 collection, the basic principle of which, as she states, is the “sheer elegance; I wanted it to feel light and stripped down”. Well, now we can say that if this was the main task, then it is accomplished. The Monique Lhuillier spring/summer 2014 collection is a beautiful play of sensual fabrics, bright colors and languid shapes that promise to turn any fashioniser into a real goddess on the red carpet!
The domineering color shades covering the whole Monique Lhuillier spring/summer 2014 collection seem to be the fire-inspired and brightly burning tones of red, coral and pink, which appear to be “painted” on a soft white background of delicate pieces with a great proportion of handicraft on them, which made them look even more stunning. The general emphasis of the collection was put on dresses, which were sumptuously shaped and colored, being as fabulous and bright as possible. On the other hand, unlike the loudly out-speaking hot colors, pieces with more faded color overtones were like the silent and at the same time very admirable elements of the collection.
Some of the pieces were composed of some bandeau-like details, mostly carrying the brighter color proportions. Silk is the main common thread leading us through the collection and it is silk, which we find transformed and altered in very many shapes and outlines. Gazar elements are another characteristic trait, when describing the collection. It became a perfect tool for creating the desired touch of elegance in all and every piece. Another thing about the collection is that the sleeves can be hardly found here, as the overwhelming part of the line consists of sleeveless pieces, putting a special accent on the femininity and chic.
Thus, we can describe the Monique Lhuillier spring/summer 2014 collection as a light, lavishly colored and undoubtedly graceful intermix of imagination. “Women have busy lives. Their clothes need to be real,” said Monique Lhuillier about the main conceptual ground of this beautiful fashion line. So this is how really the flight of elegance looks like.
