Where to Detox Like the Cushnie et Ochs Designers in New York
Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs launched their capsule collection with Bandier today, but they've had years to find their favorite workout classes, juice spots, and spas. Here, they share their health and beauty hit list.
Lately, it seems like everyone is jumping on the athleisure collaboration bandwagon: Derek Lam and Athleta, Beyoncé and Topshop, and most recently, Olivier Rousteing and Nike. But the alliance between Cushnie et Ochs designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs and activewear mecca Bandier is particularly apt, as both are focused on using the latest technologies and fabrications to create the best look and fit. The resulting collection is a combination of the brand’s signature viscose gowns and Bandier’s juice bar-ready tops and leggings. Think of it as the Little Black Dress of your workout wardrobe. In honor of the line, which drops today, the designers share their exercise regime, beauty essentials, and favorite workout classes.
