All bets are off with Lara Miller's Spring/Summer 2009 collection, which marries avant-garde with orthodox, resulting in wearable bamboo-and-organic-cotton numbers that wield just enough element of a surprise to keep you—and your admiring public—guessing.

Genteel boatneck ruffles, dainty cap sleeves, and buttoned-up boyfriend cardigans meet daring shoulder-baring cut-outs, plunging necklines, flared wide-leg trousers, and hemlines that hit the thigh just so. And it's the details that morph the humdrum into the inventive, like a skinny silver zipper than runs down the entire length of a flirty, waist-hugging skirt; or pinch-pleated tiers that lend a sleeveless halterneck dress an architectural grace. Other haute-to-trot twists: A one-piece jumper gets gathered bloomer bottoms and a pair of hip-high pockets, versatile fabric straps twist and tie to give one dress a trio of options, and frocks flip backwards to offer a second opinion.
