NYFW: Cushnie et Ochs
WHO: Cushnie et Ochs
BIO: Design duo Carly Cushnie & Michelle Ochs consistently bring an almost-futuristic rock edge to their womenswear collection, often incorporating leather and fringe into the mix.
FUN FACT: Linda was the judge for their Parson’s senior thesis; Carly & Michelle tied for the highest honors. Their talent was clear to Linda & she understood that they were their own best muses. A few years later, Linda & our buying team attended their first show & bought the collection.
ABOUT THE FALL COLLECTION: Design duo Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs are their best muses: for Fall 2012, they presented a tough, downtown girl who isn’t afraid to get wet in the sportif scuba silhouette that’s already quite popular for Spring. Racer-backs, leather patches and other sleek touches dominated their collection consisting of a primarily New York-centric palette of black and cream. But don’t fret, color-lovers: Carly & Michelle dreamed up a few cool blues of teal and cobalt (colors we’ve enjoyed seeing crop up for next Fall) featuring peek-a-backs and curious cut-outs a la urban warrior siren of the night. Another shining moment was their electrifying string of pewter dresses and pencil skirts that had us taking a shine to all things sleek & minimalist.
