For Fall Carlie Cushnie and Michelle Ochs were inspired by Spanish thriller, 'The Skin Lives In', a film about a man who turns turns someone into a physical replication of his deceased wife. While the reference may seem far-fecthed, anyone that has followed the brand will quickly realise that the reference is actually quite apt.
The design duo are known for using tailoring on figure hugging dresses to enhance the female form. This season they reworked them by adding cut outs along the chest and in some cases on the hips in a way that was sexy but uncompromisingly powerful. As the show developed the pair also introduced some dresses with looser silhouettes in royal blue which helped break up the otherwise structured collection. The combination of blue and green on the looser fit dresses also helped add a flash of colour in what was otherwise a very dark collection.
A selection of nude dresses could possible represent the bandages - the repair work after the duo played with their scissors with the cut out dresses. This was partcularly true on a halter neck style worn by Erojna Ala.
