CARLOS MIELE Spring|Summer 2010

Brazilian-born Carlos Miele made his debut at London Fashion Week during the Spring 2002 season. Here we are at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York Spring|Summer 2010.

Proudly celebrating the female form in chiffon, charmeuse silk, tropical wool (sturdy but lightweight for spring & summer), cotton tulle and of course leather & lace. Using colors of guava, pink, nude, white, black & gold. Abstract prints of beach, snake & "onça pintada."

His "pleated bolero" jacket is a fun twist and will be wearable to a number of functions. Made in silk, tropical wool & dark denim. One would be able to throw this over a camisole for a fun night out or silk blouse for a refined "polished" look.

Another detail I loved was his "silk dread locks" shown as a belt and or dimensional detail on a vest or silk bolero.

Very dimensional with the use of fringe & crystal encrusted embroidery. These elements add to the celebration of the female form. Carlos Miele's collection is sophisticated comfort. Enjoy the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week footage
