Designers took more than just a backward glance this week. Nicole Miller and Jill Stuart worked the Sixties and Cynthia Steffe landed in the Eighties, while Luella Bartley embraced the teddy boy and Reem Acra had a sparkling Art Deco moment.

Nicole Miller: Here come the Sixties, which are fast shaping up to be the decade of choice this season. But Nicole Miller didn’t go strictly Mod for fall; she added a dash of Twenties Art Deco to the equation. Many of her silhouettes were very body-conscious — as in tight, ruched jersey dresses or tops paired with minis — and they weren’t always flattering. The designer didn’t really tap into the charm and enthusiasm of her last collection until the second half of the lineup, when she sent out a series of cocktail dresses and evening looks. Winners included a sparkly bouclé coat and scarf, drop-waist dresses with ribbon details and a group of beaded Deco frocks. Actress Rosario Dawson — who was in the front row with Marla Sokoloff, Izabella Miko, Marcia Gay Harden and her daughter, Eulala Grace — gushed that she couldn’t wait to get her hands on all the lovely beaded looks.
