Gai dep truong Tran Phu

Miller's colorful collection of resortwear took its inspiration from traditional Balinese prints, which she applied to crinkled silk tops, sarongs, swimwear and dresses, punching up the colors along the way with bright, fruit-flavored colors.

Miller said when she was in St. Barts last winter, she had brought a mostly white wardrobe to wear. But when she arrived, she didn't feel like wearing white - she wanted to wear something more colorful. Her assistant had been on a trip to Bali and brought back all kinds of colorfully printed fabrics and traditional clothing. "That's what I should have worn in St. Barts!" said Miller.

"All the men wear sarongs that have these checker prints, so it looks like a mismatch, but actually it's not," said Miller about a colorful printed silk dress with checker ruffles extending from the dress.
