Cushnie et Ochs Fall 18 Zaha Hadid inspiration

This Fall 2018 Season, Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs celebrated their 10-Year Anniversary with a runway collection inspired by their ultimate muse - Zaha Hadid.

“Zaha Hadid was the Queen of the Curve. An icon with the fearless ability to push boundaries in all aspects of work. Her architecture will always be something that we look to inspiration, as she was truly a visionary- a woman who empowered women everywhere.”

- Carly Cushnie + Michelle Ochs

Cushnie et Ochs Fall 18 Details

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.
