CUSHNIE ET OCHS

Laser cut fitted, tailored-to shapes that formally hug and trace the woman’s physical detailed curved shapes of the body, titled Cushnie et Ochs’s SS17 collection. Classical cream neutrals, peachy coral pinks and licorice black, noted foundational Cushnie hues, perfectly covered sharp sensual silhouettes. Black and pearl married into mirrored halves, gave us the two sides to every beauty, moment and art. Never a disappointment, only an intended holiday travel life extension to be experienced by every woman.

Marissa Webb delivered a reconstructed and independent story of the redesigned ‘working girl,’ filled with feminine silhouettes, sheen shined, light lit fabrics and a simple color meadow with vibrant color accents. Special features included ideal separates with inevitable transitions from the office work day, to cocktail-dinner event wear. The added hints of waved cuts and flares, fine tuned classic black and white checker board prints flowed flawlessly amongst the crisp whites, noir, army olive green, creamy and desert burnt neutrals and chartreuse pops of color. In essence, a lifestyle presentation of an adventurous modern day young woman that is able to exude a business strut and let her hair down for a skip stroll on the sunset town.

SACHIN + BABI

Sachin & Babi’s presentation represented strength with grace. The dresses were definitely graceful with intricate detailing of lace and flowers. Although the dresses were simple, the silhouettes represented a fluidity where motion like a ballet dancer could be accomplished. The live presence of ballet dancers wearing the collection showed fluidity while they danced delicately round in ballet shoes. The detailing in the styling was phenomenal as each look was comprised of a single dominating earring in one ear tied with flowered chokers. Degas to present, Sachin + Babi is a lightweight painting of spring to be remembered.
