Trendabl Preview: NYFW with Monique Lhuillier

Fashion week has officially begun (today marks the first day here in NYC) and we at Trendabl have the inside scoop on Monique Lhuillier’s Spring Summer 2014 collection! The inspiration behind her collection this season was all about shear elegance. The magnificent Monique created this feel through the use of bright, bold colors in clean and modern silhouettes with feminine details. Lots of lace and embroidery was used throughout the looks. Click through to see some sneak peek images of the collection. You can watch her show live stream on her recently revamped website on Saturday at 7pm EDT. Check back on the blog next week for a full fashion week recap!

Monique's inspiration for her SS14 collection was based on this image, which she described as having "shear elegance."
Here is the color palette for her SS14 collection: luxury laces in bright bold tones.
Intricate detailing can be found throughout each of the pieces in her latest collection.
The ombre effect is a staple in this collection - even in the bead work!
Tulle and gold embroidery add a sense of luxurious elegance to her SS14 story.
