Cushnie et Ochs Resort 2017: Ode to Estella Havisham

Cushnie et Ochs Resort 2017: CFDA backed brand Cushnie et Ochs Debuts Resort 2017 Collection.

American fashion house Cushnie et Ochs always had a way with designing for man-eaters, the woman who can swoon a man with just the slightest gaze. This season, Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs’s chose a muse who was certainly up for the task and so happened to be one of the greatest man-eaters of all time. Meet Estella Havisham of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, but more specifically when Gwyneth Paltrow played the Estella in Alfonso Cuarón’s modern version filmed in the 1990s.

The collection was well-curated, abundant in a fine selection of fabrics like the fine ribbed knit tops and dresses, lightweight stretch twill trousers, and sleek viscose dresses. There were plunging necklines and clean cut-outs on jumpsuits, dresses and tops. Some of our favorite pieces were the impeccably tailored palazzo pants, confident pencil dresses, and an abstract water lily printed gown with a plunging neckline, guaranteed to make the wearer a walking work of art.

Despite the opulence of the collection, let us remind you that this is for a woman dresseded to kill.
With their lead character in tow, the design duo managed to capture the sensuality and elegance of Estella with the minimalistic approach of the 1990s. Overall, the collection is retail ready and has a definitely clean editorial feel that we’re sure will be a hit with Editors and the fashion focused all Season long.

Check out our a few of our favorite looks from the Cushnie et Ochs Resort 2017 Collection below.
