Nicole Miller: Return of the Futurism

If you’re a fan of modernist fashion that leans towards a fusion of the minimalistic and the futuristic, then Nicole Miller’s fall 2011 collection might take your fancy. It might also take your fancy if you’re a Star Wars fan, a grouping of people whose collective noun I clearly do not know, given the layered and belted finishes of some looks seem to be begging to have a lightsaber clasped at their hip.

So it was that on the catwalk of New York fashion week that Miller presented looks that have a toned down silhouette and whose embellishments opened in the form of slashes of colour before transitioning into pieces where pleats and cloth served to catch the eye.

As a whole this can be a rather hard collection to look over – the digital winter prints don’t seem cohesive with most people’s wardrobes, while the styling has hard overtones of a science fiction genre that doesn’t, if stereotypes are to be believed, generally appeal to the fairer sex. However, take each piece on its own merits, particularly those intended for layering such, and you’ll get a sense for where Nicole Miller‘s autumn (fall) / winter 2011 / 2012 collection can fit within your own wardrobe.
