A vision of paradise with “perpetual sun”. This is how fashion designer Carlos Miele himself characterized his spring 2012 collection right after his show. Classy, ethereal, sunny and sophisticated, all the looks presented in the Carlos Miele Spring 2012 collection during New York Fashion Week on September 12, 2011 were endowed with a high dose of femininity and sensuality.
“I see a dialogue between artificial and natural, modified beauty and organic, technology and life,” said the Brazilian designer Carlos Miele, who named his collection “Immersive Landscape.” The designer enveloped the concept of an artificial environment under the perpetual sun in his collection, where fish skins floated as flirty prints on chiffon caftans, oysters made patterns and items like long mermaid hair and sleek dresses in fruity colors added to the imagery of this artificial natural paradise.
Including mainly dress designs and shying away from trousers, the designer’s vision about the upcoming fashion trends was more than vivid – femininity and sophistication to the maximum! Eclectic color combos, digital prints, the concept of ethnicities, luxurious golden touches, high splits and minimal accessories are what Miele suggest for spring/summer 2012.
With paradise being the theme, it was no big surprise that the designer had opted for vibrant hues, opposed neutral tones. Bright orange, mossy greens and ocean blues are some of the most notable options color-wise in the brand’s vision. From casual wear pieces to evening gowns, the ensembles presented are extremely lust-worthy, being a serious eye candy for fashion addicts.
Overall the styling was kind of “wealthy housewife on vacation in St. Barths”. And actually, at the end of the show, it made many people present dream of a sunny vacation!
