Cushnie et Ochs

There are times when the credibility of the fashion industry is questionable, at best. For example, remember those commercials about this the bedazzler? There was also a time when it was socially acceptable to wear leggings with slashes along the side. Once we even considered Brittany Spears' attire acceptable to wear in public. This was a dark period in fashion, but when you look at the beauty of Cushine et Ochs S/S '12 show, you'll instantly forget our past transgressions.

Designers Carly Cushine and Michelle Ochs make us forget that once upon a time, fashion designers gave into this urge to try every idea they've ever had in one garment. Yesterday at Milk Studios, they brought us a collection that is sexy yet subtle, and interesting but not "interesting" as in "dear god what was she thinking? I don't know but let me take a picture!" A few highlights of the collection include a full pleated leather skirt that stops mid knee - a nice break from the maxi and midi lengths that we'll be wearing all winter long—and a stunning knee length white cocktail dress with a slit in the front. Cushine et Ochs take on spring with a fresh palette that includes white, pale pink and yellow. The usual spring/summer suspects —floral and tribal—are absent. Despite what you may have heard, minimalism ain't dead. (Photos by Elisa Hyman)
