With the cooler weather approaching, fashion starts to look a little darker, perhaps a wee bit more sultry. In the September 2009 issue of Elle UK, photographer Karen Collins' aptly titled photoshoot, “Darkness Falls,” takes us on a journey through this coming season's sexiest trends: silks, lace, and sheer fabrics.

Featuring designers like Dior, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana, Collins allows the clothes to speak for themselves. The “Darkness Falls” shoot is all shot on a black back drop, with the model posing in various saucy ways.
