At a Monique Lhuillier show, there are gowns and then there are gowns.
The latter are the ones that seem impossible to make—so great the
number of beads, so vast the quantity of tulle—and are designed for
occasions that come with camera crews. As usual, Lhuillier's show closed
with a clutch of these stunners, but it was the cocktail looks that
preceded them that gave the collection a splash of modern vitality. A
splash because Lhuillier was water-inspired this season (sailing around
the Mediterranean will do that to you), and her arresting digital prints
had aquatic subjects like an abstracted crane, rounded fish scales, and
an oversize koi. By Alison Baenen
