One of our favorite collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week this season was Nicole Miller's totally-80s-inspired spring show. The brilliant use of clashing patterns, striping, set off with a New Wave-y Industrial-lite use of black is totally up our street—and even though the references are now 30-ish years old (omg, we're so old), they still feel fresh and modern and totally wearable. If you were a fan of Depeche Mode or Information Society in 1991, you will very likely love this collection.
