Monique Lhuillier sent her fall 2016 collection down the New York Fashion Week runway on February 13, 2016 at the Skylight Moynihan in New York. The collection was “an artistic expression of an eccentric woman that is cool, relaxed, and rock n’ roll.” Lhuillier designed the collection for her customer who mixes unexpected combinations, and experiments with rich textures for that over-the-top elegance. The result is a collection which is both luxurious, fashion-forward, cutting-edge, and downright covetable.
Well guess what?! You don’t have to wait to shop the collection until August, or September, when the fall collections hit store shelves. The hot new concept of “see it now, buy it now” is in full swing, and Monique Lhuillier has jumped on the bandwagon. You can pre-order her collection online now!
One of the biggest trends at New York Fashion Week was the concept of bringing the runway directly to the consumer; without the traditional, season-long wait. Many designers have adopted the concept and are allowing pre-orders of their fall 2016 designs, and/or making some pieces available immediately. Love that!
Immediately after Monique Lhuillier’s fall/winter 2016/2017 collection went down the runway, select pieces were available on her website in limited quantities. In order to highlight these shopping options, there was a handbag symbol next to each ensemble which was available for sale on her website in the run of show materials left for guests of the fashion show.
This was an amazing concept, since customers were able to shop select styles from the fall 2016 runway as soon as the last model walked off the catwalk. Then, to add to the excitement, at the end of February, Monique Lhuillier announced her full, fall 2016 collection was available for pre-order online for a limited time! How fabulous is that!
With a nod to the early 1970s, the collection is filled with metallic tapestry lame, paisley printed jacquard, watercolor roses, classic shoulder bags, playful sunglasses, thin belts, and ornate footwear. The collection is beautiful, and you can pre-order it now!
I have my eyes on this beautiful green dress I Instagrammed after the show. I am also coveting this pink coat. This pink skirt caught my eye on the runway, I was so sad I didn’t get a picture of it! It would be an amazing addition to my wardrobe. What are your favorite pieces from the collection?
