WHAT WE THOUGHT: "This girl has a tougher edge," read the opening line of Nicole Miller's show notes, and indeed she did. Miller's take on the watercolor print thing showing on runways all over town did look a little more chaotic and stormy. Even her name for it, "digital riptide," evoked a sense of modern confusion, not the soft rain of spring. Biker influence in the form of zippers and leather paired with scuba stretch fabrics. Gunmetal gray was everywhere. But there were also softly pleated shorts and drapey pants. We really loved the white dress with opalescent stripes crossing it from every angle, and the dresses with asymetrical shoulders -- modern and edgy, but also kind of pretty.
