Monique Lhullier #RTW Spring 2015 #NYFW

"Monique Lhuillier has mastered the art of the beautiful evening gown, but for Spring '15, her focus shifted to daywear. 'I really wanted to grow that category and dress my customer earlier,' she said. Her inspiration stemmed from a event trip to harbour Island in the Bahamas. 'When the sun rose over the ocean, the sky turned beautiful shades of blush and lavender, and there was this reflective quality to the water,' she explained. 'I wanted to install that sparkle in every piece.' The concept was straightforward on a neoprene dress printed with a shimmering sunrise landscape, file an iridescent silk voile skirt and a cellophane-like silk mikado dress were a bit more avant-garde. Lhullier also experimented with new techy fabrics, like the 'liquid satin' on the bust of a cocktail dress, which resembled metal when it caught the light." -
