Carlos Miele Spring / Summer 2012 centers around an artificial paradise with a perpetual sun, and women from different ethnicities form a global community where there are no racial boundaries.
The collection includes fluid lines, sculptural forms and vibrant digital prints. The show opened with the first several models wearing goldfish, oyster and reef print silk chiffon kaftans over belted white shell bathing suits.
The palette is bold with color, including coral, blue and green and vivid reef and fish skin prints.
The collection includes chiffon tops, long and short silk charmeuse dresses and long silk charmeuse skirt. Many of these looks are belted with either gold metal mesh, gold metallic leather or black patent leather and worn with white leather and lime or black and green suede high heel sandals.
