Informed by the notion of “Architectural Deconstructivism,” silhouettes favored diagonal lines over 90- degree angles- creating fluidity through the hemlines of dresses, skirts, and adding geometric interest in necklines and sheer panel detailing. This is seen prominently in the season’s opening look - a pearl long sleeved pencil dress that offers a sweeping sense of movement through curved seamlines with cascading Ostrich feathers.
Intricate embroidery is displayed in various iterations throughout the collection - from subtle deconstructed lace cutwork shown in a luxurious velvet Lamé pant and then again in a silk charmeuse slip, to a mesh finale gown entirely edged with faceted crystals, and then a fragmented curve embroidery made up of 3 dimensional sequins and beading - seen atop lace inserts woven throughout the collection.
Cool architectural tones of black, white, ink, cocoa, mauve, dune and pearl grey ground the collection- woven together and accented with metallic gold, iridescent silver, and a pop of vivid fuschia in contrasting silks.
The Fall 2018 season celebrates the second season of Cushnie et Ochs Footwear, showing an array of satin pumps, booties and crystal-lined sandals, and debuts five new handbag silhouettes – introducing the NOVA, CLEA, ISA, BINX, and the LULA handbags in an array of silhouettes in contrasting silk, leather and suede.
