>> Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs took a little journey to the softer side for Spring 2012. Sure, there were the body-con silhouettes and masterful tailoring we've come to expect from the line, but this time around there was a certain lushness on display as well. Circle skirts flounced beneath sharp-cut blazers, cowl-folds draped liquid-like on sheath dresses, and a delicate eyelet fabric made an appearance on several blouses and skirts. There was color on offer as well, in the form of lemony yellow and candy pink. If all this sounds a bit too girly for Cushnie et Ochs, never fear. The collection had plenty of plunging necklines, geometric piecing, and sexy leather to temper all the sweetness.
