Quantcast
Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2014
Bright whites, bathing suits and bondage


 Designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs debuted their Spring 2014 to a patiently awaiting crowd Friday afternoon at Milk Studios on 15th Street. Taking inspiration from - of all things - straitjackets, the pair sent 28 looks down the runway. In classic Cushnie et Ochs form, the collection featured a primarily netural color palette of bright whites, deep blacks and soft nudes, this season accompanied by rich purpleand abstract sketch prints. Strategic cutouts, buckle detailing, and strapping were featured aplenty amongst both bodycon and more languid silhouettes in textured leather, jersey and silk, exuding a very unrestrained, sensual and powerfully feminine overture. Slicked back hair paired with smoky eyes and power pumps rounded out the show's overall theme of dominion. As seen in the form of pencil skirts, jumpsuits or fit 'n flare minis, the collection made one thing clear - the Cushnie girl has a clear point of view and is not afraid to dominate in style
