Spring 2012 has shown a new side of Monique Lhuillier; a more sexy, serious side that what may have been expected. While this is a different take on what we see from Monique, the collection still had all the essentials of her style; attention to the woman’s body, chic silhouettes, and – while there weren’t many in the collection – beautiful gowns.

This first looks were very serious and structured, with blocks of bold colors and the addition of leather and lace which transitioned throughout the collection. Sleek and sporty cocktail dresses were fitted to the body, demonstrating the woman’s interest in fitness and healthy lifestyles. The trench coats in the collection, with bold colors, prints and lace details, could even be styled as dresses.
Known for her gowns, her evening wear was sexy and body fitting, accentuating the woman’s curves and lines, with open backs, lace cutouts, and ending in mermaid style which added even more definition to the body.
