Cushnie et Ochs brought their signature overflow of femininity to New York fashion week for their Spring 2016 ready-to-wear presentation. Flowy trousers, sexy cut-out bodysuits, draped maxis, and strapless shifts were just a few of the gorgeous pieces spotted on their runway. Pastel shades of yellow, mint green, and lilac fast-forwards us to Spring, but the collection was not complete without the classic versatility of denim, leather and black&white. Contrasting muted and color-absent tones aren’t the only juxtaposition the designer duo enlisted for the flower season, however. Chain link necklaces center rested between ladylike deep cuts; gold buttons ornate pencil dresses and frilly leather tops cemented a brilliant balance of urban-edge and graceful ease. Nobody loves a masterful merging of opposites like I do (see blog name) and this collection does just that. I love volume, structure, ruffles, all of which are incorporated into their designs. One of the founders is Jamaican like me, adding to my appreciation of another great collection from the brand.
But don’t take my word for it. View some of my favorite looks from the show below and share your thoughts.
