It's "the gardens of Versailles and storming the castle," Miller said in her notes to the crowd on Friday at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center.
The first look out was a slim sheath covered in a zigzag mix of flowers, shattered glass and stripes — and touches of "powernet," sort of like a mesh.
Many of the super-skinny jeans that followed were distressed, and they were paired with a beaded denim jacket or crinkled leather one. A scoop-neck dress dotted with with sequins of bright teal, pink and purple was topped with a black neoprene vest.
Miller named her collection "Rebels With a Cause," and offered a tagline: "Power Meets Pretty."
This runway took a turn from the more delicate direction other designers have been going in the early going of these seasonal previews.
Still, there were more serene moments, especially a faint floral-print trenchcoat and an airy ivory-colored dress with scroll embroidery and printed pleats.
