NEW YORK, N.Y. - Nicole Miller might have a bit of a crush on a new man — and she dedicated her fall collection to him.
She dubbed the line she presented Friday night at New York Fashion Week "Menswear With a Twist: Raiding the Boyfriend's Closet."
It was the good girl meets bad boy, packing a wardrobe of tough leather jackets, pleated skirts and several fedoras for the adventure. No apologies to mom.
There was a youthful vibe on this runway at Lincoln Center with some particularly short knit dresses and a skin-hugging corset dress in a print called "tatooage," which looked exactly as it sounds.
There were, though, some outfits that were more in line with what's expected from Miller, including a long dress in a wallflower print with a ruffle front and a stretch-denim dress with sexy net inserts.
The black matte-jersey, floor-length dress, with a dropped leather waist and notched V neck, that closed the show was the right high note to leave on.
But where Miller saw "golf pants" on a pair of loose baggy trousers paired with a burned out velvet-and-georgette blouse, the audience might have seen glorified sweats.
