Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2011 RTW


The collection was a distinctly Cushnie et Ochs take on the Native American tribes of the Wild, Wild West complete with "elastic boning" inspired by American tribal jewelry, loads of fringe and fur, feathers in the models' hair - the works. Among the many native references were leather tops and dresses that were as smooth and buttery looking as those of Celine and mane-like fur that hung down from the hemlines of dresses and skirts. Unlike the typical neutral palette associated with Native Americans though, Cushnie et Ochs went with a very shocking palette of inky black, metallic silver, airy white, and bright purple. As unusual as the colors were for the theme of the collection, paired with Cushnie et Ochs' signature minimal, slightly apocalyptic shapes, it really worked.

And as if the clothes weren't convincing enough, I leave you with the nails:
