Carlos Miele Spring 2012 Runway Show

The starting point for Carlos Miele's Spring 2012 collection entitled Immersive Landscape was a virtual paradise, an imaginary world where the lines between what is artificial and what is natural are blurred. These abstract concepts were translated into ethereal caftans, sultry cocktail dresses and dramatic evening gowns marked by fluid lines, sleek sculptural forms and vibrant digital prints (one featured goldfish). Carlos Miele always embraces color, and this season the Brazilian designer went for bright orange, teal and aqua. My favorite looks were on the subtler side, like a black and white swirl print top paired with a flowy white skirt, or a gleaming white one-shoulder Grecian gown with a shiny gold belt. It was a surreal show and a surreal moment when I realized that this was my third Carlos Miele show - does that mean I'm not a Fashion Week rookie anymore...?

Beautiful collection! Love how everything flows and the colors are so summery.

Hehe yep, you're officially not a rookie anymore!

This is a beautiful collection. I'd definitely love to wear the teal-colored gown. Nice symmetrical designs too.

I love this collection as well! The sea foam green top with the cream skirt is gorgeous!! I would definitely rock that look!! The collection reminds me of being on the beach in south France. It has an amazing feel and look to it! Love it!

That was one of my favorite looks as well, probably because I'm obsessed with all the colorblocking Gucci did last season and it kinda reminded me of that. Simple but makes a huge statement!
