Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs took their Pre-Fall collection on just a little field trip. They usually photograph and present in-studio through the pre-collection season, but today everything was setup in the window-lined top flooring of the brand new Museum. It made good sense, as the designers indicate iconic artists as their key sources of motivation; this lineup was influenced by the task of three of these: Henri Matisse, Sol LeWitt, and Richard Serra. The decision to seem at these particular artists wasn’t at all surprising either: Filled with curvaceous lines and cut-outs, their work is a lot more than on stage with the slick aesthetic of the label.
The designers interpreted the artists signatures nicely, with embroidered multicolored sequins and fringe detailing on tops and suiting the motif was designed to recall LeWitt’s Vertical Brushstrokes painting. Likewise eye-catching was the new custom, Matisse-esque metalwork that kept cut-outs together on really jewel-toned dresses. Cushnie et Ochs hardly ever ventures too much from its familiar figure-flattering silhouettes, but today, for the reason that airy space on top of the modern art museum, there was definitely a brand new feel to the dresses.
