It was all about mixing and matching on the Monique Lhuillier runway as the designer debuted her effortless Fall 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week — and considering she’s already a red carpet staple, her stylish celeb fans will be clamoring to debut her latest looks. Check them out right here!
Monique Lhuillier is known for her dreamy dresses and for Fall 2016 she infused a rock n’ roll vibe into the line, embracing chic separates and prints while mixing textures — the result? A covetable collection that felt effortless and luxe. The designer referenced actress and style icon Talitha Getty as the inspiration behind the line as she sent cool separates, bold gowns and statement outerwear down the runway in hues of cherry, teal blue, rose pink and basil with darker amber hues and caramel woven throughout the looks.
While her clothing is so inherently feminine, it never feels too sweet — and her latest collection is proof of that. From cropped pants to pencil skirts, the designer updated the classic silhouettes, giving them a seriously chic upgrade in luxe fabrics and patterns. Another standout in the collection was the outerwear, as the looks were polished off with oversized fur coats and cropped jackets. While I couldn’t get enough of the furs, there were also cashmere coats and embroidered cardigans that really shined. I was most impressed with both the styling and the mixing of textures, like the way the models rocked crystal socks with their shoes — an unexpected twist on the Monique runway that we totally embraced. While we couldn’t get enough of the tailored pants, tweed skirts with severe slits, full midi skirts and embellished blouses, it wasn’t all about the separates.
She brought the drama with her gorgeous gowns and dresses in lace and brocade — and it’s only a matter of time before her celeb fans, (like Julianne Hough, Lea Michele and Nina Dobrev), debut the dresses for red carpet appearances.
The collection also marked a first for the designer, as she debuted her sunglass line. The models rocked the accessories down the runway, showing off the frames in black, red, tortoise and rose gold.
