looked to Rio de Janeiro in the 1970's for Resort inspiration. There were plenty of his signature, high-spirited gowns (see: the cobalt blue halter number with puckered silk fuxico
detail), but the Brazilian designer has been trying to ramp up his daywear offerings for a while now, and he showed a few looks here that were welcome departures from his normal fare. While two-tone palazzo pants with a high waist or a slick denim suit with flared trousers seemed a little too Charlie's Angels
, a white crepe jumpsuit and a coral romper could work with heels or at the beach. And speaking of the beach, Miele showed swimwear for the first time. Considering how much Brazilians love their bikinis, it's surprising that it took him this long to get around to it. The results should be a hit with Miele fans looking for something less formal and expensive.
