Savannah and Sienna Miller tightened up their line considerably last season, putting the focus squarely on "what girls want to wear." That's how Savannah put it, as she showed off Twenty8Twelve's latest collection, which was rich in urbane yet easy pieces. The inspiration, loosely translated, was the Studio 54-era seventies, a theme mostly glimpsed in items like a slinky halter-neck jumpsuit, a drape-front bodysuit, and a day-to-night jacket in a cool, Lurex-threaded fabric. The Millers certainly didn't dwell on the theme—and their practical approach to design revealed itself in the standout knitwear. "It's not necessarily very 'holiday,' " Savannah acknowledged, fingering a cabled crewneck in mottled tomato red. "But not every girl goes away for the holidays." True. But pretty much every girl will be happy to slide herself into Twenty8Twelve's bootleg trousers or slip on one of those cozy cardigans. Not much to report here, then, but plenty to wear.
