Monique Lhuillier is no stranger to opulence. Her signature glamorous red carpet gowns and ethereal wedding dresses have been the ones to look out for every season. For her Fall 2013 collection at new York Fashion Week, Lhuillier amps up the luxury and richness of her style with lustrous fabrics, intricate embroidery and jewel establishments.
There are soft white cable knit printed dresses, soft fur vests (dyed to make them stand out), feather printed bone white gowns made with crepe for the day and delicate chiffon gowns with graceful drapes, brocade pants with slim legs and sequin paillette encrusted cocktail dresses for the night that give her Fall 2013 collection a lavishness that uplifts and saturate at the same time. The colors are lush and rich - oxblood red, amethyst, malachite green that gives a marbled effect to chiffon and shimmering gold and copper.
Lhuillier interprets the evening attire for modern woman with shorter length gowns - the skirts of faille gowns have almost fireworks like embroidery and exquisite web lace dresses have high low hems. The luscious details of fringes, feathers and deco embroidery make Monique Lhuillier Fall 2013 collection an indulgence we can not escape.
