Nicole Miller Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

There is one 63-year-old American fashion designer that makes the fifth largest city of Texas proud to have been the birthplace of Nicole Miller. Massachusetts also has reason to grin with glee, seeing a woman raised on its soil make it in the fashion world as a designer and businesswoman. Fabric manipulation is her signature effect in all her designs, a little trick learned during intense trainings in Paris. Today, the Nicole Miller fall/winter 2015-2016 collection can be seen on the New York Fashion Week runway, a brand that came to be back in 1986 and which has grown to create extensive collections for J.C.Penney, alongside a home furnishing collection for Bed, Bath and Beyond. Bright prints and patterns are her thing, a staple that is born from having artist friends and fusing it with a renegade personality.

The Nicole Miller brand is known to and loved by many a celebrity, including Brooke Shields, Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé Knowles, LeAnn Rimes, Susan Sarandon and Eva Longoria. Even the clothes for Condi Lauper’s world tour were designed by Nicole Miller. Within the last 28 years, so much has occurred in the life of the brand, bringing it up to a profit from $650+ million in annual sales.

The current Nicole Miller fall/winter 2015-2016 collection is enough to really grab the attention of all who take a look. We’re looking at some pretty intriguing pieces, but what is more interesting is the muted colorings of it all, while random pops of blue and red appear. Perhaps the first trend to draw attention is the interestingly unkempt designs of the stockings worn by most of the models. It looks as if they are old but they have been torn and worn in a very pretty manner, wherein the patterns actually appear to be stylish. It would certainly be hard to get such a look from working on your own stockings at home, surely. Even the pants seem to have patchy looks to them, with added coloring

We do find the very common theme of floral designs appear among the collection as well, though the one skirt that is in a blue, black, olive green and white background color scheme looks to have pomegranates gracing it’s panels instead. A black background generally serves as the base for most of the designs, including the little star-shaped plum digits that seem to have been so painstakingly embroidered on one particular dress. While midi hems do seem to be the norm, a few shorter pieces, especially in colorful feathers and an equally colored rug-style skirt with the fringes bringing the hem lower and closer to a midi. That same pattern exists in the form of tops as well, allowing for mixing and matching of each part of the collection to create one’s own psychedelic masterpiece straight from the imagination.

There are so many colors and so many patterns, all in darker muted hues, that the whole of the Nicole Miller fall/winter 2015-2016 collection appears to be inspired from the zoo in the evening light. The peacock patterning and the leopard print skirt and jacket certainly attest to that theory. The crimped body-con dresses themselves appear to be striped version from further away. There is a sex appeal in a very chic demeanour all across this bold and charismatic collection.
