Nicole Miller Pre-Fall 2013

HIGH CONTRAST
New York: Nicole Miller, a designer typically unafraid of bright tones, stripped all the color away for her Pre-Fall collection. Only metallics and shades of grey broke up the mostly-black-and-white offering. Eye-catching geometric intarsia designs and luxe leopard kept it from feeling somber or monotonous, while intricate beading added textural interest and artisanal appeal. There was the slightest hint of a 60s influence, with boxy shifts and miniskirts, in addition to the berets that topped off many looks. Jackets appeared in a variety of appealing styles, from blousons to bikers to blazers, but each featured some form of piecing, which added continuity. Over-the-knee boots, zippers, and black leather gave looks a seductive edge that is sure to lure clients to her label.–Joanna Manganaro
