With his exuberant design and love for vivid colors, Carlos Miele is fast becoming an American favorite as a fashion designer.

Miele is also somewhat of a superstar in his native Brazil, not only for his design talents but for his tireless efforts to give back to the underprivileged in his Sao Paulo hometown community. Among other activities, Miele trains local women in the handicraft methods he favors in his work and buys their pieces. His efforts have also helped revive these old-world Brazilian artisan techniques.

the label

Carlos Miele looks to traditional Brazilian artisan techniques like patchwork, stitching, crochet, and leatherwork in his exuberant and insanely sexy designs. Miele designs both his ready-to-wear label and his hugely successful secondary denim line, M Officer, an affordable fusion line available only in Brazil.
