Photography: Helmut Newton

While seeing a big trend in erotic fashion editorials these days… Take for instance Mr. Olivier Zahm and Purple Magazine; I’m always compelled to think of the amazing work of Helmut Newton. He was ground breaking and legendary in his study of the female physique… Always done in a very chic yet urban setting and always with his own signature style, a lot can be said for his work and I could even see a designer these days sculpting a collection and being inspired by his images… Dark and sexy yet raw and real with subliminal tones of carnal feelings and bourgeoisie attitude… Helmut Newton was the real deal.
