Monique Lhuillier Bridal SS15

The Monique Lhuillier Bridal Spring/Summer 2015 Collection, titled « My Ethereal Daydream », draws inspiration from John Singer Sargent’s paintings.

Other John Singer Sargent-influenced collections : Dior by John Galliano Couture Spring/Summer 2008 (this show was partly based on John Singer Sargent’s portrait of Virginie Amélie Avegno Gautreau, titled « Portrait of Madame X »), Peter Som Autumn/Winter 2007-2008 (this show took inspiration from John Singer Sargent’s brush strokes), Prabal Gurung Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (this collection was influenced by John Singer Sargent’s 1880 « A Parisian Beggar Girl » painting), Sue Stemp Spring/Summer 2009 (John Singer Sargent’s works were among the initial inspirations of this collection).

    Oh to be a ‘bit of a meringue’ and love every minute of it! That headband and those shoes bring it to earth, a bit. BTW, in honor of Spring my nails and toe nails are a very close color to that dress: cornflower blue. XO

    Oh how gorgeous–from her enchanting headband all the way to her glittery slippers, she reminds me of Cinderella in her cotton candy, cloud enveloped ball gown! Fabulous! XOXO

    Oups, je crois que mon message précédent n’a pas marché… ^^
    Je disais que j’étais amoureuse de cette robe et qu’elle était juste sublime ! 🙂

    Mon seul regret et qu’elle soit de couleur unie, mais on ne va pas chipoter pour des détails )
    J’adore la coupe ! Elle me fait penser à une robe de mariée ^^ J’aimerai en avoir un de ce genre si jamais cela m’arrive un jour ^^

    Merci pour ce petit moment de rêves 🙂

      Hihi, toi aussi tu as des problèmes avec Internet MDR Je suis bien contente que tu aies pu poster celui-ci car il est sublime, merci à toi ! Petite leçon d’anglais : “bridal” signifie “nuptial”, donc il s’agit d’une collection de robes de mariée XD ! Je te souhaite vraiment un jour de porter une robe aussi merveilleuse pour le plus beau jour de ta vie ! ❤

    I love how it starts so simply at the top, only to explode glamorously with a bold floral skirt. I love that we can still see the shoes.

      Thanks a lot for your poetic description ! A glamorous floral explosion, this is exactly what it is !

    wow this is absolutely stunning, like the model just stepped out of a fair tale!!!
    the crafstmanship of this dress-from the flattering bodice to the grand flower s on the train of the gown-is exceptional, and we love the idea of a wedding dress in lilac rather than conventional white!
    well done ms Lhuillier and well done fashion Mayann for featuring this amazing creation!!

      Oh, thanks so much ! Like you, I’m totally seduced by the lilac (slightly unconventional but so unique) and the extraordinary work that Monique Lhuillier’s atelier has done ! ❤
