Nicole Miller stuck to her formula this season, focusing on patterns and materials. "I wanted to do something really abstract," she explained. "There's no big theme here." This translated to draped dresses in bright digital prints, as well as futuristic shifts in dense Lycra cotton and a Lurex-raffia blend. The designer also looked beyond the usual sources for her fabrics. After donning a Tyvek jumpsuit to paint in during a charity event earlier in the year, she cut a dress in the same industrial material.
One piece of news: Miller's just-debuted Studio Beach collection, a separate year-round line of caftans, swimwear, and dashikis with a boho flair.
