I couldn't be more happy to start my first-ever MBFW coverage talking about Brazilian designers. As you probably know, I'm Brazilian as well, so I must say that I am really proud of reviewing my fellow designer-superstar Carlos Miele's show.
Putting my patriotic feelings aside, Miele's show was, by far, one of the most beautiful tastes of what to expect for next Spring/Summer. With a strong aquatic element, most patterns felt like a water-color painting; and, in fact, one of the caftans that opened the show was printed with giant a koi fish. The caftans, in my opinion, were the standout pieces of the collection.
The show was breathtaking, full of sexy mermaid dresses, asymmetrical skirts, deep cut-outs, one shoulder dresses and tops, gold details, vivid colors, slinky fabric, and unexpected necklaces.
It was an amazing travel through the "Immersive Landscapes" of Miele's mind, with a Brazilian soundtrack and the most energetic catwalk that I have ever seen.
Must have S/S 2012: sheer, chiffon, maxi dresses/skirts and caftans, asymmetrical, cut-out (especially on shoulders), and gold accents for day and night.
