Monique Lhuillier Resort 14

The colors and the landscape architecture of Palm Springs have inspired the Monique Lhuillier Resort 2014 Collection.

Other Palm Springs-influenced collections : Banana Republic by Trina Turk Spring/Summer 2012 (this line of summer wear, launched in June 2012, featured Palm Springs-influenced prints, taken from Trina Turk’s archive), Barbara Tfank Resort 2010 (Barbara Tfank’s then-recent vacation in Palm Springs inspired this collection), Chris Benz Resort 2010 (this collection was based on Chris Benz’s trips to Palm Springs, to his grandparents’ home, when he was a child), Clements Ribeiro Pre-Fall 2012 (a « Palm Springs hostess » was the muse of this presentation), Douglas Hannant Resort 2011 (Palm Springs was one of the references of this show), Emilia Wickstead Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (in part), House of Holland Spring/Summer 2011 (the ’70s feel of this show partly drew inspiration from Henry Holland’s then-recent trip to Palm Springs), Michael Kors Resort 2014 (this collection pays tribute to Michael Kors’ recent trip to Palm Springs), Versace Spring/Summer 2006 (this show took its inspiration from Palm Springs’ colors and landscape).

        You’re welcome, my lovely friend ! I wasn’t sure if I could use this French expression but it’s definitely OK if you’ve learned something new (you aready know how to say “thank you” in different languages LOL) ! Cheers !

      C’est vrai que la top Alla Kostromichova a toujours un air sévère MDR, mais, en même temps, je la trouve très “classe”, parfaite pour mettre en valeur cette robe somptueuse ! Je viens juste de laisser un commentaire sur ton blog ! ❤

    Monique Lhuillier can sure make a dress to fall in love with and this one is no exception! such a stunner, we love everything from the bustier top and cut to the beautiful print! see, the only problem we have as a result of following your blog is that you have us fantasizing about these perfect creations!!

    Got to love it and Palm springs is just great for fashion, style and beautiful clothes, although ithere use to be more elegance several years ago, women seem to wear elegant casual wear more now. But when there is a a!!
    But still beautiful. When I lived in Chicago I would buy my clothes from a beautiful shop ..could you believe I forgot the name of the shop it was in the Spa Hotel. The little shop had the most beautiful designer clothes. .My kids would laugh when we came home..because I had all these awesome new clothes.Then the Spa hotel was taken over by The Local Indians and now it is a great Casino and I don’t know if they have shops there..Mayann I never really found the great outfits and beautiful clothes that she had..When I got home I couldn’t wait to wear them. At the time I had a wonderful restaurant and lounge.
    Have you ever read the wonderful Palm Springs, Magazine…That is so full of elegance just as this beautiful lovely dress and those shoes are something else..Magnificent!!!!
    So nice to see Palm Springs featured on your wonderful blog .re-blog to artimpressions and wp

      Thank you so very much for reblogging this post and for your wonderful fashion tale ! I must confess that I’m not very familiar with the Palm Springs’ style but I’m not surprised to read that women really dress up for benefits ! I have never read the “Palm Springs Magazine” though … Thanks again for this lovely trip down to memory lane, for sure, I enjoy it !
