Fashion Week: Wearing Nicole Miller's Spring Collection in Denver

September 2010

The It Factor for Denver: Her spring 2011 collection is a strong one for Miller, and local women will find it easy to pick up any number of pieces—from a sheer tank with exposed back to a linen biker jacket or even a sultry, scribble-print maxi-length slip dress.

The Gist of It: As at BCBG, Miller designed her collection in keeping with the minimalist movement trending through the fashion world. Working in white, pearl, dove gray, putty, and black, Miller balances well-tailored jackets and vests with short-over-long layers of blouses or button-down shirts, asymmetrically hemmed or sheer tunics, and racerback tanks—all paired with floaty chiffon skirts (both maxi- and knee-length). But Miller keeps the collection from floating away entirely by integrating tougher elements, like ribbon-harness motifs, cut-out backs, and graphic prints.
