Nicole Miller is the one American fashion designer that we always admire for her bright colors and patterns. She always has something new to add to what we thought was perfection with no possibility to refine, and now that the Nicole Miller spring/summer 2016 RTW collection has been showcased we are once again stunned by the brightness of her incredible style. This time she took inspiration from a really simple random source – the brick walls in downtown NYC and most importantly, the graphic graffiti on them.
The runway show was a very exciting one, just like the clothes showcased. A recorded MTA voice announced “And the next stop is Fulton Street”, which was followed by the appearance of a young break-dancer, who showed everyone that the day was going to be a real fun. This was a perfect start for a collection designed for the cool trendy girls that walked down the runway wearing the lovely pieces splashed with street art motifs. Adding some edge to the color bursts and tricky patterns, the designer created numbers you will love to wear on a daily basis. There are elegant knee-length skinny dresses with graffiti prints on them, maxi dresses, loose blouses teamed with black pants and sneakers to absolutely recreate that free-spirited feel of NYC. The city itself is nothing but an unbelievable combination of luxury, elegance and cool youthful styles, and Nicole knows it better than anybody else. Nicole’s line with the off-the-shoulder blouses and cut-out shirts, colorful long skirts and paint-splashed trousers is just for all kinds of fashionistas living in the city, and not only.
When looking through the Nicole Miller spring 2016 collection one cannot but notice the amazing details, which make it so unique and trendy: these are all types of cut-outs on the shoulders of some long-sleeve blouses, on the dresses in the form of geometric patterns, on the sides and chest area of the black dresses, the horizontal grills on the necks or all the chest of some pieces. You’ll see loads of scribbles and paint drips in the collection, which are so fun and yet extremely trendy. The same diversity refers to the materials used, as the designer utilized sequins, chiffon, organza, cotton and wool, as well as denim in white, tobacco and black colors to create those lovely daytime pieces.
It is amazing how easily these numbers being so different in style can look so good together, while the makeup is universal for all of them. You just add a dramatic black smokey-eye makeup, straighten up your hair creating a subtle messy finish, sometimes gather some strands back for that funky feel and put on all sorts of numbers you like from the collection to create effortless and fun looks perfect both for daytime wear, as well as a nice outing. Wholly, the Nicole Miller spring 2016 lineup includes clothing pieces to help and inspire you with everything that is connected with NYC. So put together your own look experimenting with any of the comfy blazers, athletic pants and tops or the womanly gowns and dresses and be the queen of the street and all the parties you appear at!
