Nicole Miller Takes Us to the Mayan Ruins

Nicole Miller is as American as American gets, but for Spring 2007, she brilliantly whisked us away to an ancient civilization destination at her runway presentation on Friday, September 8th. Clearly drawing inspiration from Mayan culture, Miller created a Central American chic motif that had everyone channeling their inner Mayan princess.

Miller’s color palette included rich, earthy brown, ivory, and tan with bursts of coral, lilac and aqua. The collection featured a tapered silhouette. Blouson tops and bubbly dropped shoulders made for a billowing above-the-waist shape and pencil skirts hugged the hips. Keeping with the desert theme, fabrics were light and airy; dresses in breezy crochet and silk georgette were among the collections best, as were Miller’s “Santos” print dresses, which resembled a Mayan mosaic.

The collection’s theme was a nice blend of the rustic feeling inherent in the dress of a desert culture, but without losing Miller’s signature of polished sensuous looks for women.

In addition to her collection, Miller also designed a one-of-a-kind bottle for Effen Vodka that debuted at her show. The bottle will be auctioned later this year with 100% of the proceeds going to DIFFA, the Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids.
