See the Best Backs From New York Fashion Week

By

Last season marked the debut of our back-view runway photos, a handy (and innovative) way to show you all of the details you miss out on in most runway galleries. Once again, this season we've combed through all of the shows to bring you the most interesting views from behind. Take for example Alexander Wang's elegant sweaters, which were solid in the front but daringly low and bare in the back, or Rodarte's sexy jumpsuit that revealed a set of angel wings once the model turned. Award-show standbys like Reem Acra and Naeem Khan understand the power of a coy glance-over-the-shoulder red carpet photograph — their sexy fishnet overlays or rhinestone-encrusted details are practically begging to be worn with a chic updo. Even casual wear got into the rearview action at 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone with stong silhouettes and coats that were equally eye-catching coming and going. Click ahead for those moments and more in our slideshow.
