Monique Lhuillier Spring/Summer 2012 Ready-to-Wear Collection
On NEW YORK, September 10, 2011, Monique Lhuillier, the creative designer of that fashion house that took the same name, surprised the audience with her new collection. Although the designer had always this tendency of wedding dresses, yet the whole collection freed from bridal gowns at all. The collection tried to deliver a message of focusing on the body as a matter of attraction or in other words, the process of dressing a modern atheistic woman. At the same time, the designer seemed successful in message through the use of suitable prints, colors, fabrics and cuts.
Prints took the look of graphic graffiti patterns, moreover, colors weaved from carbon, cobalt, magenta, indigo, yellow and ink.
As well as, fabrics were fascinating with the employment of crepe, jersey, tulle, stretch wool, taffeta, chiffon, lace, georgette, silk and leather.
There were various cuts such as; dresses, jackets, skirts and trousers. Dresses were of knee length, strapless with corset shape or draped ball gowns with trumpet shape, exaggerated shoulders and floor length. As for jackets, they were just trench coats. Skirts were pencil and of knee length. Moreover, trousers were slim with ankle length. Eventually, just high-heeled strappy sandals played an important role as accessories.
