Key Takeaways: An architecturally inspired collection with a somewhat mod, futuristic feel.
Color Palette: Muted blacks and greys, paired with metallics.
Silhouettes: Monique Lhuillier’s strength is her dresses, and the architectural seaming on these dresses was reminiscent of Narciso Rodriguez, circa 2003. Details to note: the high neckline, the yoke-collar combination, and the slim vertical cutouts.
Accessories Report: Metallic belts expressed the architectural theme of the collection.
What’s Wearable: On the red carpet, we expect to see the high-waisted cap-sleeved black dress with metallic gold hardware–the perfect silhouette for women looking to visually elongate their legs.
