Fashion Week Spring 2014:
Seen and Heard at New York Fashion Week
Nicole Miller Turns Mayhem Into Delicate Beauty
Nicole Miller drew inspiration for her spring 2014 collection from the Palace of Versailles, but from an unusual point of view. The designer focused on a time when the palace was stormed during the French Revolution. “We were thinking about how when they trashed the castle and broke the mirrors and the chandeliers” says Miller, “I was doing hard and soft—tough women but feminine.” Miller's successful contrast can be seen in the look shown at left: a frock reminiscent of a chandelier toughened up with a leather moto-stye vest.

At the Louis Vuitton Art Basel Beach Barbecue event, Michelle Williams (in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton) was the epitome of chic, effortlessly styling her stripe tiered skirt with a slouchy blue sweater, the brand’s signature checkered clutch and mustard yellow sandals.
