Seu Jorge & Carlos Miele = Great Show

Luckily, my man advised me to crash the Carlos Miele show. "Seu Jorge is performing," he said, "you have to go." Ok. And as I sat on my couch today, taking a break from the tents and nursing the fashion week flu, I thought to check the schedule and saw the Miele show was at 3pm. Mad dash! (And once again, dry shampoo to the rescue.)

I made it just in time, the PR girls with shiny hair gave me standing room, and the line was totally manageable. Yes, I only waited for a few minutes and actually got in. A miracle for me this week.
And Joy! Seu Jorge was amazing. This sounds really cheesy, but he walked out of the DJ booth and stalked the models up and down the runway. And it was so natural; he was playing the girls and the crowd perfectly. Here's the beginning half of the show for those interested:

Hard to see the details of the clothes (I'm an amateur; that's all the easy button gave me), and when you're taping it's difficult to get a good read on the line as a whole. Here's what I was struck by: easy elegance, beautiful reds (yes, for spring, and lovely), light greens and soft blues, and flowing, moving fabrics. Miele calls this collection "a dance between nature and the female body," and just as Seu interacted easily with the models, the clothes, too, fell seamlessly round bodies down the runway. There were touches of sparkle on belts and straps and perfect little sheath dresses. But I think this shot sums it up:

It's got flow, it's got legs, it's green, it's got it all.

















Sorry, this shot isn't saying so much but I wanted you all to see this multi-toned cherry red.


































Look closely, a strappy shoe!


























A perfect little sheath.


























Sparkly, jeweled straps; good lord, look at that ass detailing, it's fabulous.


























The finale; see Seu in the second photo? He either tripped a little or did it to make the girls laugh. I love him.

oh no, are you sick too? (or just sick of the girls at the tents?)
i tried taking photos today while i was at doo.ri and i had to stop after the third look because reviewing the clothes and using photo equipment made me suck at doing both. i decided to leave the photos to the pros.

I'm so glad you included the video because it looked much better than it sounded. Towards the end did he disappear backstage or was he out of frame?

As for the clothes I'll need to take a closer look but from where you were standing, they looked beautiful.
