Fall 2013 Style Watch: The Enchantress at Cushnie Et Ochs
Design duo Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs offered looks ranging from puritanical to out right seductive for Fall 2013. The drama laden designs inspired by early Americans did the trick with slim-lined silhouettes. We were drawn to the slightly more scandalous end of the spectrum, complete with mystery and sex appeal all wrapped up in a fashionably minimalistic package.
Body hugging dresses, in you guessed it, black or other darkened shades got vamped up for a night out. Exposed thighs thanks to high slights and a daring decolletage with deep v’s at revealing varying degrees at the chest. Detailing like geometric cut-outs, lace-up features, and sheer inserts added simple intrigue. Fabrics suited to the the temptress lifestyle came through with a satiny sheen and leathers. Even the print teetered on the side of magical with a glowing scene against a shadowy backdrop. fdmLOVES selects from CUSHNIE et OCHS fall 2013 by Brigitte Segura, Written by Sarah A. Freiseis.
