Fashion Week: Carlos Miele

Fashion Notes
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.



Key looks
Eveningwear consisting of ruffled gowns that flowed as light as air along the runway

Textiles
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.

Silhouettes
Urban cowgirl for day and traditional Brazilian princess for after dark
