Look for ponchos and hats, wide belts, gold accents and embellishments as seen during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York.

 

For Fall Winter 2012 Designer Carlos Miele features a color palette of neutrals - creams, whites, beiges, browns, and blacks, enlivened with touches of color using solid turquoise, as well as autumn color prints featuring gold and rust orange, and tropical color prints.

Carlos Miele captures the essence of the Brazilian gaúcho from Rio Grande do Sul with a collection of ponchos done in embellished fabric or in fur, as well as his choice of hats. The collection also features skirts, blouses, pants, dresses, eveningwear, and fur shawls.

He works his technical magic using bias and laser cuts for his gowns; a few of the highlights included a shimmering gown with an asymmetrical neckline, a gown with an asymmetrical bodice and flowing skirt accessorized with a short sleeve jacket with embellished sleeves and collar, and a deep v-neckline black gown with lattice weave.

Other collection highlights included a black jacket accessorized with an embellished wide black leather belt over a flowing richly patterned skirt in shades of gold, yellow, brown, and black, a print seen elsewhere in the collection, in gowns, as well as in blouses.

Turquoise showed up in the collection in a laser-cut pencil dress paired with a short sleeve cream jacket embellished on the front, in a dramatic black and turquoise one-shoulder gown with wide belt accented with gold, as well as in a daring sheer blouse paired with black pants. While you may not be taking a trip to Brazil this season, you can still capture the look with the Carlos Miele Fall Winter 2012 Collection.
