Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011

Monique Lhuillier‘s Spring 2011 concept of a dreamy Garden of Eden euphoria was rather an overdone and humdrum approach. “A beautiful girl running through a lush garden”… I think every fashion student has used some form of such an inspiration for a project, (mine was a scandalous 1920s garden party). Nonetheless, the clothes were alluring and very feminine. Girly yet refined cocktail dresses that were corseted and pleated, draped gowns, and a few lightweight daytime separates. The dominant colors were tones of blushy pinks, smooth creams and golden caramels, cultivated with minty green and apple red to create a very appetizing palette.
