Cushnie et Ochs Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

During the Cushnie et Ochs fall/winter 2015-2016 collection showing on the New York Fashion Week runway a few hours ago, it was clear that an even stronger element of elegance had been injected into the brand’s upcoming seasons. The sex appeal it exuded was simply outstanding, perhaps even worthy of the expression to die for, in its entirety. Sheaths of emerald fell below the knees, while terra cotta viscose knits entered the line-up. A lovely lilac cashmere coat was worn down the catwalk, with matching high waist pants and a silk and cashmere honeycomb pullover also making the cut. There were lots of slits, plunging necklines to below the bust and see-through mesh that filled up the scene and messed with our senses. The attitude and the sizzle known to Cushnie et Ochs was definitely there full-throttle and we couldn’t tear our eyes from the incredibly beautiful pieces paraded before us.

It was back in 2008 that the Cushnie et Ochs brand was founded by the collective efforts of Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs. It was meant to seamlessly combine the bold sensuality of a woman with the raw feminine attitude that is both understated and particularly modern, the confident woman with the luxurious individuality. The sense of energy that is both alluring and positively intriguing has its hold on each of us as we stare at the designs that celebrate the woman’s silhouette and complement the figure perfectly. Bold lines and equally bold colors allow for a woman to shine instead of hiding herself under layers of garment that do little to flatter her as a whole. Awards have been gained over the years for this ability to really cater to the modern woman and meet her aesthetic needs, the brand’s popularity attested to through the presence of the label in over 100 stores.

Perhaps the best part of the Cushnie et Ochs fall/winter 2015-2016 collection show was seeing it open with a curvaceous but stunning model, Crystal Renn, taking to the runway in a signature skin-tight piece in dirty prink coloring, created with power crepe and mesh with lots of love. Body-con is not just for the stick thin or those with the Amazon Queen bodies out there, but for the real woman, the one with the curves, the thighs, the hips and the thicker waist. It matters not that the calves are fuller or that there’s a thickness to your arms. On the contrary, you can look perfect just the way you are. It’s not only a fashion statement made here, but a cultural one as well, defying the norms and daring the world to disagree with the fact that a woman with a size 10 or 12 body can look mesmerizingly attractive in a tight, revealing dress.

There are barely any mini hems across this line and for that we are extremely happy. You can be sexy without showing mile long legs, and if you do, you can use high cut slits along the side that really bring the focus to the thigh underneath. The sheath dresses are gorgeous beyond belief, falling just above, on or just below the knees to elongate the figure as much as possible. The fully body jumpsuits with the extreme deep V plunges at the neckline have us believing that our chests are definitely worth revealing thus, though the lack of bra might be a problem for some. The mesh appears across the line-up, across the collar or the abdomen, in strange cut intervals and anywhere needed. There are cropped designs among the collection as well, paying their respect to the 2015 trending looks.
