NYFW: Nicole Miller's fall 2009 collection
NEW YORK -- Nicole Miller showed a great collection for the price, picking up on the architectural vibe coming out of Paris and Milan last season. The silhouette was tight and sexy, with glossy and matte black color blocking and graphic details.
She opened with a wine twill shift dress with braided pleats articulating the waist. The shift seems like it could be it for fall. Skirts were super short with crisscrossing metallic embroidery or shard-like layers. A black and white print used on a blouse and dress reminded me of the steel beam and glass ceiling of the Grand Palais in Paris. The combination of cobalt and black also looked fresh.
