What one could clearly see through Carlos Miele show during MB Fashion Week in NYC was green and blue waves mixed up naturally with rays of sunset light, golden hues and eternal white. There was wavy tailoring, fabrics and prints revolving around the same theme like typhoons, placing in the middle of everything the very idea of flowing, refreshing water. Some of these fortunate pictures of summer fun were rendered in black and white while others kept their original colors as they were rocking the catwalk. Some waists were highlighted smartly with thin golden/bronze belts while many décolletés were enriched with wonderful draping. Florals won their case assuming shades that were out of the garden-scape and staying in tune with the sea-breeze concept. Noone denies that those elegant gowns made of light-weight fabrics will be a must-have for next season. Most patterns and motifs were very imaginative, almost escaping from the palette of the long-forgotten painter living somewhere in the Mediterranean. Turquoise with sugar white and gold as well as orange with gold were among my favorite combinations from this collection. I also loved the rich, colorful caftans and will never resist to their wavy prints even when they appear in black and white. Slim lines juxtaposed on the same outfit with loose ones, made the interplay of volumes look like a natural phenomenon. The ‘atmosphere’ was warm and windy, compelling you to view these looks in a completely natural setting outside that huge room (namely the ‘Stage’ at Lincoln Center) were their showcasing was actually taking place. In terms of lengths the designer suggested a lot of midis – especially in fitted little colorful dresses – and maxis, some of them with completely revealing slits. I also enjoyed a lot of marvelous one-shoulder dresses and details such as richly draped, short sleeves.
