A pretty pearlized pallette in a remodeled townhouse
For the die-hard Monique Lhuillier fans (and we know you’re out there), her Flagship boutique on the Upper East Side is heaven on earth. With red carpet ready-to-wear, accessories, licensees and of course a full offering of her bridal collections down to the perfect wedding stiletto, this charming boutique packs a big punch for its petite size. Much like Monique herself!
The boutique is a remodeled townhouse that has recaptured the feel of a single family home. The space is narrow and the rooms are small, but the open staircase that connects the ready-to-wear on the first floor to the bridal salon on the second floor makes it feel warm and open. The gorgeous Monique Lhuillier for Waterford chandeliers are made in Ireland and are reminiscent of the soft crystal beading of her gowns.
The bridal salon carries all of the Monique Lhuillier signature bridal collections, including a few pieces from Bliss, her moderately priced bridal line and Ready To Wed, her ready to wear collection of bridal gowns- an amazing alternative for all you brides who are shopping too close to your wedding date to get a made to order gown. Shoes and her famous bridal belts are here too, so you can be a stylized Monique bride form head to toe!
Appointments are taken by phone, however you may request an appointment online and a consultant will get back to you.
