The Show: Nicole Miller Spring 2013
The Theme: “Batteries Not Included” -a 1980s Redux
The Color Palette: black and white stripes, florals, inky blues
Best Standout Look/the Signature of the Collection: Nicole Miller may have looked to her very own archives for inspiration in this collection that gave an ode to the early 90s in print, silhouette, and styling, but felt fresh with cut to the body leathers, cropped tops, and fitted blazers.
The Show: Kaelen Spring 2013
The Theme: It’s so Easy
The Color Palette: Creams, blacks, beiges, acid yellow
Best Standout Look/the Signature of the Collection: Kaelen used silk and neoprene liked we’ve never seen before. The pieces, not intimidating and certainly salable, will be strong everyday wardrobe contenders for many women, come spring.

The Show: Chadwick Bell Spring 2013
The Theme: “Austerity and Adornment”
The Color Palette: Creams, blacks, beiges, green, rose
Best Standout Look/the Signature of the Collection: Conservative lengths and cuts make this collection ultimately easy to wear without pushing the trend envelope. This quarter-length sleeve, paneled dress is a piece that can be worn season after season.
