LONG, LAYERED AND LANGUID
New York: Nicole Miller’s spring collection reinforced many of the trends that are already starting to take shape this season: layered dressing, sheer fabrics, relaxed tailoring and a long and languid silhouette. Georgette maxi skirts formed the basis for most of the looks, appearing with side slits, ombré washes and fluttering A-line variations. From there, Miller piled on silky button-ups in various lengths, slouchy tunics, somewhat conservative sweater vests and techno “inside-out” jackets. Each layer was chock-full of intricate details like draped panels, back cutouts, cage-y straps and outside darts. At times, the sum of these parts seemed a bit fussy, but, like many designers this season, Miller stayed within an eye-pleasing palette of neutrals, olive and celadon. Adding to the newfound sophistication of the line, Miller’s signature prints went in a more subtle direction, a welcome departure from her usual commercial conversationals and exuberant colors. A prism motif and a photorealistic print depicting crumpled paper brought a linear anchor to all the filmy layers – that otherwise seemed about to float away.
