Fashion Week Recap-Nicole Miller

Black, grey, gunmetal metallic silver, with splashes of persimmon and cerulean blue were the colors of Nicole Miller’s Fall 2011 ready-to-wear women’s collection. Geometric shapes and angles that played on these blending of hues were evident as Nicole Miller drew on Sol LeWitt’s sculptures and drawings as her inspiration. Miller describes the collection as “Angles over curves”.

 LeWitt believed that if you looked at any line with your eyes and mind open, the transformations of the line were endless. It could be straight, curved, broken, soft, angled, thin, or thick. One should enjoy differences. He reduced his art to a few of the most basic shapes; triangles and  quadrilaterals. Miller pays homage to LeWitt with her geometrics and the collection’s diagonal darting and seaming giving the thirty-four look collection a hip-but-oh-so-cool vibe.

 The models sported sharp lines and shapes to their faces with a slightly geometric smoky eye, peach blush and beige-y lips and grey nails to help capture the look.
