"My assistant traveled to Bali and brought back the most amazing prints," said Nicole Miller. That explains how, after last year's primarily white collection, the designer has come to embrace ROYGBIV and the charms of the South Pacific for Resort. Working in a paradisiacal palette of lime, berry, orange, and turquoise, she presented seasonal staples like caftans and tunics, worn with coordinating floppy hats from Patricia Underwood. Tribal prints contrasted with a checkerboard pattern, a nod to the sartorial preferences of Balinese men. Add a recurring cloud motif and, like Miller, you might find yourself dreaming of far, far away.
