LBS Runway Report: Nicole Miller Spring 2013

If Rebecca Minkoff was aiming for luxe and tropical glow with her showing, Nicole Miller was the perfect contrast. Her “good girl meets bad” collection is stunning. There’s no denying that. Who can resist a leather and floral combo? 

But we usually don’t think tailored bombers and denim trenches when we visualize our spring wardrobes. Maybe that was Nicole Miller’s goal. If so, mission accomplished. 

She proved her point with the juxtaposition of Rihanna-esque downtown edge with uptown elegance. It seems impossible. But clearly, Nicole Miller nailed it!

From the sleeveless leather tops to black peplum skirts with wedding trains, Nicole’s “Batteries Not Included” collection is wearable, versatile and full of surprises. Keeping up with the androgynous trend this season, silhouettes varied in Miller’s showing. I especially adored the pleated navy shorts paired with a crop top decked in geometric shapes. Other notable pieces included a floral print dress with a tailored leather jacket and pleated shorts.

Nicole Miller’s reputation for creating collections that are original, wearable and sophisticated is still intact after this showing.

Thoughts on the collection?
