"It's two completely different styles," Jason Wu said backstage at his Spring 2013 show. He was referring to the two photographers who inspired his collection, Helmut Newton and Lillian Basman, but he might as well have been talking about his collection as a whole. The designer played with the contrast between sensuality and innocence this season — and the result was just as naughty as it was nice.

Strong silhouettes and masculine tuxedo tailoring were softened with the addition of organza panels, point d'esprit insets, and embroidered lace. Angular darts — like those on the bodice of one sexy little sheath dress in creamy beige leather — were trimmed in grosgrain ribbon, and curve-defining corsets peeked out from filmy tulle blouses and drippy chiffon skirts. Nearly everything, including softly beaded collared blouses and twinkling, fairy-tale ballgowns, was topped with dramatic leather harnesses.

"I wanted to make a collection that sort of balanced, just teetered on that line, of sexy but still sophisticated," Wu explained.
