Carlos Miele Spring 2011 – New York Fashion Week Review

To the tune of Bebel Gilberto’s haunting cover of “We Don’t Need No Education” by Pink Floyd, Brazilian designer Carlos Miele unveiled his stunning Spring 2011 women’s collection.  Grammy-nominated Gilberto wore a Miele-designed white mini dress with a colorful butterfly print, a recurring theme throughout the collection along with a sea of light shades that included lime, off-white, orange and gold.  Miele’s signature intricate details were evident across the board, such as green ruched details across the bodice of a short off-white dress; silver and gold embroidery; and thick stringed fabric draped or criss-crossed along the front sides of several dresses.  Miele switched palettes in the end with six daring black evening gowns, combining silk organza with sheer fabric and black tulle.
