Nicole Miller has been going for a more daring and sexy look for a few seasons now and she continued on that trajectory for her Fall 2011 collection. Working in a dark color palette, sharp tailoring, body conscious dresses, high-shine fabrics, and geometric prints, Miller showed a number of eye-catching pieces that will certainly stand out when placed alongside her contemporary fashion competitors.
Nods to the eighties were seen with sharply accented shoulders and the designer’s sci-fi influence was clearly palpable, notably via metallic pants, angular tops, and robot-like prints.
Miller did not forget about her more understated clientele however, showing a slew of monochromatic belted coats, vests and jackets, slender pants, cocoon coats, and belted tops – all of which would work for day-to-night staple looks.
