Monique Lhuillier Bio via Bergdorf Goodman
Monique Lhuillier launched her collection to fill a void in the bridal market, when modern, lace-free looks with a certain flair were hard to find for her own wedding. What started there transformed into statement gowns and cocktail looks that seamlessly blend high-wattage glamour, femininity and couture-like techniques. Her dresses have been worn by everyone from First Ladies to young starlets.

Spring 2019 transports you to the French countryside, where the essence of sophisticated luxury is provoked by a poetic elegance. Embracing the authenticity of the Monique Lhuillier brand DNA, this season’s girl is joyous and carefree. A celebratory palette of dusty rose, cherry red, sea foam, fuchsia, yellow, lavender and champagne infuses romance and reverie into the collection.
Billowing Chiffons, French Tulles, Point D’esprit and flowing Organza are sprinkled with elegant embroidery and feather butterflies. Graphic and modern touches add an edgy perspective, with contrasting lace borders arranged in bold stripes over sculpted, iconic silhouettes. Glitter confetti and pearl beading mimic champagne bubbles. The fluidity of the silhouettes made me dream of floating in a lush, garden-like setting evoking pure fantasy. The air is undeniably celebratory.
Monique Lhuillier’s Spring offering arrived early this year, just after couture and during men’s rather than mid-September. Given the urgency with which the collection was pushed forward, one might have expected something new and of particular note. But it was business as usual for Lhuillier, who explained over the phone from Europe that she wanted to return to the core of the brand. “That is celebration dresses,” she said.
And so, Lhuillier sent out a slew of tulle point d’esprit gowns flecked with glitter or wrapped with very thin silk ribbons like holiday gifts, plus a few simple slips and shorter dresses ostensibly for less formal, but no less celebratory, events. Most intriguing were the handful of high-neck and long-sleeved modest evening numbers. Modest gowns represent a growing market for the designer, and they added some visual interest, as well.
The lookbook was shot at a picturesque French château, as Lhuillier’s debut Paris show one year ago had left her even more enamored with the country than before (her father is French). “I wanted the clothes to be seen in the place where they might be worn,” she said.
