Nicole Miller introduces beach favorites to her growing label with a collection perfect for summer in the City of Brotherly Love and beyond.
Nicole Miller’s newest collection brings prints and brights to swim and beach pieces like this Paradise Island Habotai Caftan, Nicole Miller La Plage ($275).
Owner of Nicole Miller Philadelphia Mary Dougherty says it best when she describes the hometown-favorite designer as “always fresh, exciting, and relevant.” And now that the contemporary designer has launched La Plage—her first- ever beach capsule collection— it’s more fitting than ever.
“This collection is inspired by my lifestyle,” Miller says of the new line full of fun prints, color, and everything from swim to cover-ups, caftans, and rash guards. “I kept in mind all the different things I might be doing, from sports to throwing some- thing over a swimsuit to go to lunch or hopping in the jeep to go shopping.” While some pieces add versatility to your shore sartorial circuit and others add a dose of sexy, one piece Miller suggests for the luxe downtown trendsetter is the lattice neck dress. “It can easily go from beach to city and back; it would fit right in at Congress Hall in Cape May,” she says for those making a weekend getaway to local shores. And what does this new collection mean for Philly shoppers? “It’s exciting,” Dougherty says. “Now every aspect of our customers’ lives is covered by Nicole in every way.” Nicole Miller at The Bellevue, 200 S.
