Monique Lhuillier promised the Garden of Eden for the Spring collection, complete with all that naughty and nice that implies. We didn't see a lot of devilish ways, save for one serpent print and a host of red pieces. However, the more angelic pieces on offer are sure to charm Lhuillier's devoted fans - the set with invitations to plenty of black-tie affairs.
Our favorite creation was a gold, to-the-knee cocktail dress to the max, dripping with crystals and topped off with a matching feather capelet. It was shorter than some of Lhuillier's other dress options (which dipped below the knee in an increasingly popular Spring style), but too decadent to be a mere cocktail dress. Extravagant? Yes, and thankfully so. Free from sin? Perhaps that depends on the occasion for wearing the dress.
