Carlos Miele

Carlos Miele Cruise/Resort 2013


New York: For Cruise/Resort, Carlos Miele shifted his focus to the sexy cocktail and evening dresses that have become his signature, rather than the separates he has included previously. There was not a single skirt or pair of pants to be found. Instead, Miele presented a wide variety of dresses styles, from knee-length, figure-hugging cocktail looks to floor-sweeping, ruffled gowns. The Brazilian designer was unafraid to work with color; he included punchy mango, rich violet, and teal, though classic black and white were also represented. Miele paid special attention to embellishments this season, using elaborate beading to add glamour to his dresses. ­–Joanna Manganaro
