Carlos Miele - New York Spring 2010
(NEW YORK) It was a battle of beach versus city for Carlos Miele, but for this Brazilian designer, the shore won easily. Miele's personal photos of the beach and city in Rio de Janeiro were translated into abstract prints; the former, a calmer blue-green, and the latter a more colorful red and yellow-based print. The dress ruled the runway, whether in micro-mini degrades like the opener sported by Abbey Lee or in the longer draped, wrapped and ruched silk chiffon numbers that closed the show--but Miele's topical wool pants were some of the more successful of the pleated pegged versions now ubiquitous on the runways.
