Cushnie et Ochs: Less is more
To designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, less is more when it comes to owning a room.
Their spring 2013 collection, shown at the Milk Studios, centered on sleek, curve-hugging dresses (perfect for front rower Kate Bosworth) in sateen that could be considered minimalist save for small details such as the revealing splice at the center, a peaked shoulder, a touch of embroidery. The most dramatic of these came in black or white, though aqua and a deep purple popped up in the lineup as well.
Two itsy-bitsy bathing suits were, well…almost x-rated, while an airy chiffon blouse topping a pencil skirt seemed almost modest but with a subtle simmer.
