Nicole Miller Fall 2010

Where & When: Friday, February 12 at 6 p.m., the Salon, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Snowstorms, exploding buildings, the subways during rush hour...it's a rough world out there in New York City. Thankfully, Nicole Miller is armed and ready to provide the city girl with a wardrobe of strong-shouldered coats with leather details, don't-mess-with-me vests, and camouflage-y prints. Underneath it all, however, are sexy, close-to-the-body jersey dresses that pick up where Miller left off last season, moving the idea forward to an even more detailed place. The hardened-exterior, soft-hearted concept perfectly describes a lot of NYC girls I know, which just proves that Miller has her finger on the pulse of urbane chic.
Standout Look: This badass coat--it's wool with leather sleeves--and fitted, textured zip-front dress encapsulate the hard-and-soft concept that ran throughout the collection. And I appreciate that Miller went heavy on the black, because, especially in fall and winter, it's what city folk actually wear, after all.
Bonus Points: In a world where gift bags are often reserved for only the front row, every last seat in the Salon received a bottle of Miller's perfume. The show also drew a healthy celebrity attendance: Beth Stern and Kelly Rutheford, who were both, good-naturedly, wearing the same dress; plus Amber Rose, Richie Rich, and, randomly, Jay McInerney.
