Monique Lhuillier has refined the art of the feminine dress. Demure lengths and modest necklines, the leaned-in waistline that delicately creates an hourglass shape, and the invariable presence of a draped mermaid skirt. She makes clothes that we would want to wear; its glamourous yet grounded, hits all the right curves and make a bold style statement without being overdone. 

It's this selective simplicity she brings to her Resort 2013 collection, which takes a stride on the bright and printed side. A Crayola-box of colourful cocktail and evening wear garner attention in acid green, fuchsia, lucent yellow and tangerine. The range is gingered up by abstract floral and paint splatter prints, accentuted by wide leather belts. Monochromatic, empire waist evening gowns are strapless and sophisticated in scalloped lace, and chiffon pleat-draped bodices and fluid skirts. This beautiful collection will surely inspire a new neon bridesmaid trend and be a hit on the summertime party scene.

Would you opt for neon evening wear?
