The Helmut Newton Effect

The Helmut Newton EffectAlong with some old standbys and new favorites, the looks from New York City’s Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Week ran the gamut. Lusting after this season’s runway hairstyles?
Some may refer to this as the 50 Shades of Grey trend. We are not those people. Instead, we are seeing this S&M-influenced look as being inspired by famed fashion photographer Helmut Newton’s iconic black-and-white photography, which always played on eroticism. Lubov Azria even referenced the photog in the show notes, citing him as the key inspiration of their collection.
