Nicole Miller called her collection Batteries Not Included — a well-picked title, since there was hardly a need for extra wattage in this high-strung outing. The designer played with a series of contrasts: good girl versus bad (there’s always that biker chick she can’t suppress), high-tech digital versus nature, and op art and surrealism with a touch of Eighties — a decade she often favors. That led to a variety of clashing patterns, textures and shapes. Miller teamed a brocadelike metallic lace jacket with a peplum shirt and floral-print jeans, and a dress was done in a botanical pattern and pixilated bar-code combo. Often, the mix provided sensory overload, though it did give the audience a jolt after a long day of shows.
