NYFW Spring 2013 Fashion Trends
TREND: Helmut Newton
BCBG Max Azria, Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Herve Leger
Some might want to call this the 50 Shades of Grey effect, but here at PageDaily we recognize it as homage to the provocative photographer Helmut Newton. Harnesses, cut outs, and mesh were huge themes running throughout shows from the thoroughly modern BCBG to the ladylike Jason Wu. Models became Helmut Newton glamour-pusses brought to life in shades of nude, black, and white accented by cherry red lips. Lace and leather were predominant fabric choices, hinting at just enough good girl/bad girl for any girl to be pleased.
