“I call it my magic carpet ride,” said Nicole Miller of her tapestry-heavy Pre-Fall effort. Corded bell-bottoms, unlined tweed jackets, brocade blazers, and georgette dresses with beaded appliqués all contributed to the I-just-bought-up-the-souk feeling. There was a beaded “hippie” vest, a little cropped jacket made out of felted rainbow yarn, and a leather T-shirt trimmed in chain mail with petit point details. The outfits were so colorful and layered up—topped off with tassel necklaces designed by Laurette Kittle of Walker&Wade—that their beauty was in the excess. Unpacked, though, each piece did its job. Miller likes a bohemian look that’s a little tough, too, and the distressing she brought to some of the separates gave them the necessary roughness.
