Monique Lhuillier Spring 2025 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Good news for fans of Apple TV+’s Palm Royale series, which is set amidst the high society of Palm Beach: designer Monique Lhuillier’s entire spring assortment is inspired by the South Florida destination, known for its elevated beach style. “I’ve only been there a few times, but every time I’m there, I really understand the aesthetic,” said Lhuillier, who specializes in glitz and glamour. “I thought it would be a great starting point for this collection, because spring and summer is all about color, prints, and a joyous feeling.”

The Palm Beach reference translated into both day and evening options. “There’s a lot more day elements in this collection,” she said. “It was about offering our customer versatility.” Striped button-ups with floral appliqués and dyed lace tops were paired with shorts for ease, and cashmere cardigans with gold buttons were layered bathing suits. Lhuillier also showed a hibiscus power suit for the ladies who lunch (a common species in PB), and ramped up her offering of linens too, including a pretty blush-pink floral dress with thin straps and a belted waist. “I want to dress my customers from lunchtime to evening,” she said. “People really dress up for nighttime.”

Formal evening wear is her signature and unsurprisingly it was the highlight, though both her gowns and cocktail dresses had a more relaxed feel this season. “For me, Palm Beach exudes glamour, but with a sense of ease and sophistication,” she said. She showed a limoncello-print chiffon gown with a built-in back cape, designed to float out of a room, Some of her ball gowns with bolder 3-D floral embellishments would have been fitting for the 2024 Met Gala, in fact, with its “garden of time” dress code.

Though the spring assortment was focused on easy-breezy silhouettes, Lhuillier wasn’t afraid to dial up the drama with shine—there were metallics aplenty. Her staple ombré column gown—in varying shades of pink, tangerine, and silver sequins—was like the fashion equivalent of a sunset.
