The Helmut Newton Effect

BCBG Max Azria

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.
