Aquatic inspirations at Monique Lhuillier’s ocean-exploring Spring 2013 collection took its direction from the beauty found underneath the ocean’s surface.

Blue, teal, aqua and white gave the ocean-inspired collection the look of painting that came to life. “But even the dresses that didn’t look like they were pulled straight out of the water carried reminders of the sea. Gauzy tulle numbers were embellished with lace or sequin embroidery that looked like the patterns of the ocean current, and one strapless gown was covered in a multicolored print that resembled the ocean depths fading from light blue to dark.” – by JUSTIN FENNER
