If you can forgive the campy commentary and unconvincing models and see the clothes for what they are; a remarkably forward statement on dress, you can gain insight into the ingenuity and wit that defined Bonnie Cashin’s designs. Famous for her leather, it was the material’s simultaneous evocation of luxury and utility that enthralled Cashin’s imagination–proof of the formidable allure of a woman comfortable in her own skin.
