Monique Lhuillier gave an amazing show as usual at New York Fashion Week. The designer’s Fall 2013 collection is a great mix of textures, prints, patterns and colors. The color of the year, emerald green come in vibrant hue and beautiful design from fur coat to red carpet-worty gowns.
The collection opens with white winter-y ensembles. There are knitwear, fur and warm materials all mixed together in chic outfits followed by som printed numbers and some beautiful dresses.
Fur is a reccuring trend each season. Lhuillier presents it in two-toned coats and fur snug scarves. The prints then become more pronounced and bold featured in skirts, suits, and dresses. The designer balances them out with solid neutral separates like a blouse or a pair of pants.
The final and major section of the collection is evening attire decorated with fringe, appliques, sparkles, and lace. The gowns and mullet dresses with embroidered matching pants make for a wide range of choice for the red carpet goers.
There is a nude dress with overlaid black embroidery that makes for optical illusion of a tattoo or body art. This one’s followed by a lace pant suit finished with a sheer skirt attached to the belt. The same effect is used in another number where the fiting dress is completed with a loose-fitting sheer fabric.
Then there are strapless gowns made of printed emerald fabrics that echo the show’s decor and fuchsia satin. The collection ends with a number of gowns embroidered with lace, beads and fringe. One of the gowns is a purple overlaid lace with fringe decorating the sleeves and the skirt to the hemline.
Another one is a black suit disguised underneath a sheer embroidered dress. The one dress before the closing number is a red loose-fitting creation with an embroidered neck and a lace suit underneath.
The foorwear was very diverse and beautiful. It included lace sandals, pointed heels and open toe designs. There were emerald green pointed pumps and even two-toned fuchsia open toe shoes.
