Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs have a strong, beautifully executed point of view for spring, which pretty much remained focused throughout their Cushnie et Ochs collection. In a fusion of Space Age with “Mad Men,” they showed perfectly cut, below-the-knee sheaths, usually with dramatically angular cutouts and details at the back and neckline. It was all done in a palette of white, lemon, pink and black cottons and silks with a smattering of leather. When they occasionally veered from the linear, the looks were just as strong with charming short and flared skirts in eyelet, canvas or leather, paired with shaped blazers over shirts. Only the clunky metal peplum belts and some rather brazen bra looks shifted the otherwise fine balance between very sexy and very chic.
