Cushnie et Ochs SS12
Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs are selling sex (and it’s okay). With an incredibly focused Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Cushnie et Ochs have taken us to the height of Space Age Provocateur. After all, no-one said minimalism had to be asexual. The show’s entire tone was set as a stark white and breast-fabulous strapless peplum dress hit the runway – seriously, temperature set to 1000 degrees. The peplums, sectional body-con tailoring and leathers were dominant, with incredible 90s silhouettes running rampant on everything. A beautifully executed point of view for Spring/Summer. Fembots will be delighted. View Post

Roberto Cavalli MFW Runway Jacquelyn Jablonski
Roberto Cavalli marked his 40th year in business by holding his Milan Fashion Week show under the Peace Arch in a tented greenhouse. The model cast alone was worth a stream – Natalia Vodianova opened, followed by Erin Wasson, Karolina Kurkova, and others, until Laetitia Casta closed. He delivered what I can only expect The Runaways would wear if they were into couture. Cavalli was clearly a nostalgic ode to Florentine handcraft. The details weren’t to be believed, – chiffon seamlessly worked with leather and animal spots made from pale sequin embroideries – reminding us that Roberto was the designer who elevated leathers, animal prints, fringe and feathers to high fashion.
