For fall 2011, futurism and angular design were obvious motifs at Nicole Miller, with diagonal darting and seaming found on a variety of materials adequate for the fall/winter weather, including leather, velvet, cashmere, jersey, wool, mesh, and twill. The palette was largely (and appropriately) one meant for the colder months ahead, in predominantly deep greys and blacks, with bursts of persimmon and the runway return of cerulean blue found in the mix.
Exposed zippers nipping at the ankle, accentuated leather knee caps contrasted upon black woven pants, asymmetrical sleeves, and just the right amount of silvery metallic — details like these were all reminders of why Miller has been such a strong, steady force in fashion. She knows how to create, and keep her point of view, while designing clothes that will certainly sell and work for a myriad of occasions, and ultimately retaining a definitively ultra chic allure. On so many levels, it’s impossible for her to disappoint her fans, while capturing new ones in the process.
