Last season, we gave the girls of Cushnie et Ochs some of the highest accolades & this season they were able to live up to their superb stylings of season’s past. Staying true to their pallet Carly Cushnie & Michelle Ochs stuck with a Black & White theme with occasional golds & light blues. Playing with very non spring-like fabrics like leather & heavy beading they were able to transform their collection into a multi-seasonal look. Dresses & skirts were A-symmetrical with inserts of leather pleats. Blouses were made from Bitten Gingham & appeared perforated, yet high quality & durable. To show their true design ability the last look was by far their strongest as they sent a Gold & Pearl beaded dress with a sash of falling chiffon draped around. One cannot finish this commentary of the artistic designs of the dynamic duo without mentioning the insanely amazing footwear paired with their designs. Shoes were equipped with killer spikes piercing through the heel & the toe as to say “don’t mess with the Cushnie et Ochs women unless you are ready to get spiked”.
