Sex personified.

That’s about the only way to sum up Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring/Summer 2009; the one truly unforgettable collection of New York Fashion Week thus far.

And not only is it one of the most unforgettable, it’s also going to be one of the most influential. 2009 fashion trend setting abounds on this catwalk.

With more sex appeal than even Angelina Jolie can muster, the Azria’s have guaranteed the one-shoulder trend a place in 2009.

But they haven’t stopped there.

Adapting Herv?© L?©ger’s iconic bandage dress to the beach, the Azria’s sent models down the catwalk in bandage bathing suits. You may never wear them in the water, but, mojito in hand and somewhere on the Mediterranean, the right figure will look nothing short of a goddess in it.

The bandage bikini, however, also heralds in a new fashion trend. No, it’s not the bevvy of bandage bikini rip-offs sure to soon hit the shelves of middle-market retailers everywhere; it’s the cut-away. Pull out your Centurion now: the cut-away trend is here for 2009.

As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views.
