Nicole Miller RTW Fall 2010 / NYCFW Day-03

For fall, Nicole Miller approached her inspiration — the city landscape — with a literal mind-set: She sent her assistants out to photograph New York, after which she hit upon graffiti and fire escapes for graphic prints and the linear streets for crisscross paneling, which ran rife through the collection. The motif worked best on her coats, from a strong-shouldered wool and leather bomber to a sleek black trench. And many pieces were appealing in a closet-staple way, like the cropped wool vests and simple skinny pants in slate and black. Miller is a go-to for the dress seeker, and for her there were plenty of body-conscious options, made of stretchy fabric on which the aforementioned prints (in green and black) were ruched in strips. At times, all that draping and twisting looked too complicated, but to those loyal clients, her lineup will likely feel like smart armor for what Miller dubbed the “urban jungle.”
