Carlos Miele's latest collection was inspired by the pampas of his native Brazil. While many designers this season have been showing hats, Miele topped off his look with "gauchas," which are traditionally found in the Rio Grande do Sul. Miele was able to combine pieces that are very rural and make them appropriate for an urban environment.

Although this may be a heavy winter look the fabrics never seemed so heavy as to overwhelm the outfit. Light wool ponchos and light silk chiffon equally flowed down the runway. Even a full fur poncho had nice movement.
