The front row at Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2014 show was teeming with lovely Hollywood ladies (Emmy Rossum, Jena Malone, Rose McGowan) in search of their next red carpet gown. The elegant dresses almost appeared to float down the runway, leaving tangerine, coral, and fuchsia-tinted trains gliding gracefully in their wake. Sounds like a dream, right? Well be that as it may, there’s no time for sleep during New York Fashion Week! Gotta keep the crowds on their Manolo Blahnik-covered toes! Which is exactly why Javier Peral, the man behind the soundtrack for Lhuillier’s Spring 2014 show, opted to go sullen and sulking with the mood of the tunes, instead of light and airy like the collection itself. To hear more about the music from Javier himself and peep the edgy soundtrack behind the delicate dresses, stay with us after the jump!

“In Monique’s words, the Spring 2014 collection was crisp, elegant and colorful, with a lot of lace and sheer fabrics. Instead of going along those lines with my music selection, we chose a sensuous, darker sound — simple and focused, with Tricky’s dark whispers as a juxtaposition to the bright-colored clothes shown on the runway.”
