Looking at the resume of Cushnie et Ochs, the French duo has all the ingredients for a successful business. Silk dresses that otherwise would resemble an everyday dress is cut with extraordinary creativity. An evening gown becomes fit for a hipster by adding sheer panels to the side of the train. Gladiator sandals are upgraded to warrior pumps as models stomp down the runway in six inch heels – either in black or white of course.
In a way, designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs seem to pay homage to the minimalist designers, Narcisco Rodriguez and Calvin Klein, while keeping the rock and roll artist Alexander Wang in mind. Everyone appreciates a smart duo, and BARE is no exception. Cushnie et Ochs is definitely one to keep an eye on.
