Cushnie NYFW FW19
Represented by Purple PR.
The CUSHNIE Spring/Summer 2019 Collection draws inspiration from Jamaican culture in the late Seventies and early Eighties — from the vibrancy of the clothing to the lively, upbeat energy of the music.
A subtly refined interpretation of Caribbean Island-life, the Spring season introduces an effortless feeling of laid-back elegance and fluidity.

Informed by the vivid colors, mesh fabrications and relaxed silhouettes depicted prominently in Beth Lesser’s photography of street style during the rise of Jamaican dancehall culture – The CUSHNIE Spring/Summer Collection features bold color-blocking, contrasting stripes, and a luxe iteration of knitted mesh. In keeping with the sensual sophistication of the CUSHNIE aesthetic, this season features clean, sculptural lines, while also incorporating an added element of texture and ease- namely through an expansion of knitwear, embroidery detailing, and the introduction of denim on the runway.
A tropical interpretation of traditional Rastafari colors, this season’s palette features feminine hues of Watermelon, Jade, and Lime, softened with Pink Sand, and contrasted with deep Ocean, Cerulean Blue, and Cola Champagne. Custom prints and embroidery are introduced in warm and cool tones – a dark Tropical Foliage Print in Ocean with bold Lime lines, and a lighter iteration grounded in Watermelon and Pink Sand stripes.
The Spring 2019 Season celebrates the launch of CUSHNIE Handbags – introducing seven new silhouettes that range from a sophisticated top-handle zip, to a soft bucket, a square crossbody and clutch featuring custom twist-ring hardware, and a mini fringe bucket in suede with luxe gold chain straps. Made in Italy, the CUSHNIE Handbag Collection features sleek gold hardware, and is constructed in soft calf, embossed leather and suede.
Designed together with American luxury house Stuart Weitzman – this season’s footwear features custom-variations of the brand’s NUDIST sandal, RADIANCE mule, and AVA sandal in Black, Jade and Watermelon silk satin, and in Gold reflector leather.
