After spring’s romp through Versailles, Nicole Miller was feeling a little bohemian for pre-fall. “I wanted it to look like she dressed herself, mixing new pieces with vintage,” said the designer. To her point, embellishment was paramount, from delicate beading and embroidery on a chiffon top to a heavy-metal mix of beads, sequins and studs on a miniskirt. There were hippie references in the burnout velvet kimono jacket, dip-dyed T-shirts and even the plaids, the lineup’s main print. Miller offered the motif in a variety of ways, including a crisp version on a silk blouse, as a painterly brushstroke on a matelassé coat and via clever embroidery and beading for a subtle 3-D effect on slouchy drawstring pants.
