Gracie Carvalho by Chadwick Tyler. (story by Kristen Bolt)

Cushnie et Ochs have released their latest looks for S/S10 and it makes perfect sense this angular while feminine line would entail the talent of photographer-to-watch Chadwick Tyler. The combined aesthetic, photographed backstage at the recent show and styled by Nicole Vitagliano, results in a look book which is not only full of movement and provocative clothes, but also an array of some of the modeling world’s brightest young stars. The likes of Gracie Carvalho, Melodie Dagault, Rachel Rutt,  Shu Pei, and Taylor Kraemer by Chadwick deliver a powerful POV to the burgeoning brand.
