Summary:  Nicole Miller splices up the somber tones of fall with decorative jacquard color prints, notably in scarf vests and long dresses.  Metal crushed shimmer livens up the runway in the form of crinkle satin dresses and pleated skirts.  Nicole transcends into fall from her spring representation of the Mayan/Aztec ruins, to Peruvian culture shown through jacquard prints and metallic sheen.  This cultural journey can be seen from a Chulucanas alpaca poncho sweater or Peruvian embroidered poplin tunic shirt.  The collection shows that scarves have evolved from an accessory piece into a clothing piece, turning a Huari silk print scarf into a panel dress.  Long, flowing silk dresses are elegant,  effortless and carefree.

Color Palette: black, grey, white, olive, jacquard prints, metal

Textures & Details:
wools, stretch crepe, silks, embroidery, cotton and poplin

Key Looks: belted black twill jacket over jacquard skirt, black crepe and grey flannel dress over striped shirt, crinkle satin dress with braided belt and choyo hat, long wool knit jacquard scarf vest over white poplin shirt, silk charmeuse flared dress, and a black and silver jacquard scarf long dress
