This season I had the privilege of doing the jewelry for the super chic girls from Cushnie et Ochs. Each model floated down the runway looking both beautiful and haunting like a phoenix rising from the ashes doing mussed up hair and dewy makeup. With an overall aesthetic that was part ethereal, and part "don't mess with me" dark edge, the result was a juxtaposition of silhouettes with both pretty draping and asymmetrical laser pleating. The details were the essence of cool with fabrications like "bitten gingham" whose gauzy texture had little nibble spots missing, and "black paper leather" with crisp architectural seaming. And those towering platforms with weaponry protruding from the buttery leather were a force to be reckoned and designed by none other than Alejandro Ingelmo. For the jewelry I created deconstructed necklaces and gloves that looked as if they were unraveling from the models necks with each step they took. The silhouettes with traditionally pure pearls were a nice contrast to the black lava rock pieces which had the look of pearls that had been burned.
Attached are the images of the jewelry from Style.com.
The show was totally amazing, and my first RTW collaboration. Congratulations Cushie et Ochs!!!
