    Nicole Miller’s affinity for far-off places is well-known by now. A different locale inspires just about every season, some more successfully than others. For spring, it was Haiti and its voodoo culture. She channeled the island’s spirit in colorful sequins, beadwork and prints, which worked well on asymmetric dresses and skirts — the less complicated the better. Even Miller’s most literal use of the Haitian motif, on a beaded voodoo doll print dress, had a certain charm. Still, for all of her fancy pattern play, the tailored sportswear, a striped boyfriend blazer paired with harem pants in particular, was the most spellbinding.

    It may be a diffusion collection, but Vivienne Westwood Red Label must be a red-hot seller if the gargantuan venue she chose to show her latest collection is anything to go by. The show took place at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, the same locale where Giorgio Armani staged his grand-scale “One Night Only” show and party exactly two years ago. On Thursday night, the doyenne of British fashion sent a troop of Bedouin-style babes down a slick black runway against a backdrop of a rising red sun. Westwood incorporated elements of men’s tailoring in light wool fabrics into the collection, alongside fresh shirtdresses in stripped or checked cotton, some with Arabian hoods. Gold lamé was worked into cropped biker jackets and harem pants, while shiny metallic stretch fabric made for slinky fitted dresses. Prints reminiscent of Kilim carpets appeared in knitwear. All in all, the collection was easy and wearable.

    The designer wowed her audience by tossing aside any niche notion of what Lela Rose is all about. She has eclipsed her rather prim party clothes with what one might call quirky sportswear. Dressed-up sporty? Certainly. And still hip enough to be perfect for those young ladies who lunch in the Meatpacking District. They would love her effortless mixes: thigh-high organza peplum skirts with offbeat printed tanks; perfectly cut cotton tweed shorts with a silk faille track jacket. The designer’s slightly hippie edge — think ikat, dip-dyeing and beads, all polished to a high shine of sophistication — makes this her best collection ever. The ease is evident, too, in her latest flirty signature dresses, among them the patch-embroidered cotton, drop-waist tank version and abstract plaid T-shirt shapes, which all reflect Rose’s newfound freedom.
