New York, September 11, 2012 – Harnesses for Max Azria, appeared in last season’s pre-50 shades Seduction & Restraint FW12 Hervé Léger Collection. My guess is that buyers ate them up. So much so, that they’ve incorporated them into their latest BCBGMAXAZRIA Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. Said to be inspired by the femme fatale muses in Helmut Newton’s black and white photography, work wear and lingerie was offset by leather harnesses while fluid silhouettes, elongated proportions and weightless fabrics embodied the seductive allure of SS13.
The looks are sexy. There’s no denying that. Look for weatherworn patinas and vintage-washed chambrays complemented by a palette of black and white with hints of muted pinks. Tulle and lace refuses to die – it’s made its appearance at more than a few New York shows. Lost in the S&M bondage chic are some of our favourite pieces – the minimalist portfolio clutches and graphic ankle-cuff heels.
