You would be forgiven if you thought Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2012 collection had a Fall-like feel to it.
The designer shunned floral prints and pastels, for bold saturated colours with a sporty athletic edge.
We saw a lot of fitted dresses with intricate seaming to outline the body.
One off-the-shoulder dress had leather panels on the sides to create the illusion of a streamline figure.
Monique used a lot of colour blocking and leather accents which gave the looks an expected edge.
Cut-outs with lace inserts provided sexy finishing touches.
A lot of lace was used in this collection. I particularly loved the use of black lace against the yellow trench coat.
I also loved the graphic splash paint prints on dresses, gowns and pants.
Odile Gilbert created tight high ponytails, whilst Val Garland for MAC gave the models a flawless look with black and blue eyeliner.
Manolo Blahnik created those sexy strappy sandals. I bet SJP will get her hands on them first.
