Monique Lhuillier Loves Jewelry


This season, Monique Lhuillier has embarked on her very first jewelry collaboration. The lucky cohort? Pamela Love. “I was so inspired by malachite early in the design process for Fall ’13 and thought it would be amazing to have some beautiful jewelry on the runway. Pamela’s designs perfectly matched what I had in mind, so I called her up,” Lhuillier told The jewelry range will bring a tough edge to Lhuillier’s feminine designs, and features statement gold collars, cuffs, and rings set with amethyst and malachite. “We worked with strong geometric shapes, which create a beautiful juxtaposition against the organic feeling of the stones,” offered Love. As for the clothes, which will be revealed at Lhuillier’s runway show on February 9, the designer hints that they have a dark, sexy Art Deco feel. “There are rich jewel tones, bold prints, and slim, elongated silhouettes,” says Lhuillier, adding, “The shoes add attitude in emerald green crushed velvet and black suede. They are knockout gorgeous!”
