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

The pro piece was a strapless ivory-pink cocktail dress with dramatic drapes and folds. View Post
