OCEAN DRIVE: You called your spring collection Perpetual Sun. How do you translate this idea to fashion?
CARLOS MIELE:
Perpetual S un is related to the virtual image of a perfect world, where the sun is always out, bright and shining, [and this] natural exuberance was translated in my collection through vivid colors, liquid and fluid lines, sleek sculptural forms, and vibrant digital prints.

It’s a collection that seems very much at home in Miami.
It’s very suited to both warm weather and a simultaneously sexy and relaxed environment; the clothes are colorful and textural and very body-conscious in their construction. M iami is international and cosmopolitan and loves all these ideas.

Which looks are best for our town?
The chiffon caftans are the most Miami-looking pieces to me. They are colorful and fluid, like the city’s atmosphere.

Ultimately, what is it about this city that inspires you?
Miami has a great energy and is such an exuberant place with vibrant people, which is fascinating. I t is one of the only A merican cities where you can either relax going to the beach or while attending an elegant black-tie event. F or all these elements, the environment provides a perfect source of inspiration.
