Cushnie et Ochs Spring 18 Inspiration 1

The Spring 2018 Collection is inspired by the life of Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo, and references the work of Spanish artist, Ernesto Artillo.

Silhouettes such as exaggerated square necklines and billowing sleeves reflect Frida’s mixed European/Mexican heritage- juxtaposing influences which are famously depicted in Frida’s painting “Las Dos Fridas.” This idea is also conveyed through the mixing of fabrics, materials and colors.

Corsetry is subtly woven throughout the collection –boning details are present across an array of structured bodysuits, jumpsuits, dresses and pants. Matte satin ribbon creates visual interest- draping across necklines, around waistlines, and over the shoulder to the floor.

A vivid, passionate color palette clashes together, contrasted by various shapes and angles – a visual that is informed by the vibrant aesthetic of Mexican architect, Luis Barragán. Print is also at the forefront this season- with oversized, abstract florals seen in printed fabrics, and then further developed into 3-D embellishment and embroidery. These details are a nod to the cut-and-paste, abstract and surrealist floral techniques of artist Ernesto Artillo.

Spring 18 Beauty Cushnie et Ochs Details

The Spring 2018 season marks the debut of Footwear, and it celebrates the second season of Handbags – introducing the new mini iteration of the classic “James Satchel” in varying fabrications and color.

"Frida Kahlo was a complex woman. She was a tough cookie to say the least; independent, fiery, even brash. But she was also sensual, unconventionally beautiful, and utterly feminine. Thanks to the push and influence from Kahlo’s spirit, Cushnie took a lighter—dare-we-say prettier—approach with their use of bright floral prints, ruffle accents, and airy silhouettes.

Despite the overall loosening up of the clothes, however, there was still sex aplenty. The first look down the runway was a corseted little black dress worn with embellished thigh-high mesh boots from the designers’ new shoe collection that debuted today. The slinky, barely-there slip dresses that followed also left little to the imagination and are sure to please any devotee. But the best handiwork this season came by way of several looks that harkened back to Kahlo. To wit, a flattering white ruffled dress could have ventured into campy flamingo garb but instead came out looking totally sharp. The same went for one of the closing pieces: an off-the-shoulder pastel yellow gown with puffed short sleeves and a not-too-tight fit. It had a dangerously high slit, too—just the right amount of risqué for a woman who knows exactly what she wants."
