What many felt was a snub at 'skeletal chic' by designer Rosa Cha ('skeletal chic' being the proliferation of anorexic models working the runways), the bony design aesthetic has apparently taken on a life of it's own. With Spring 2009 catwalks winding down, skeletons -- rib cages, pelvic bones, spines, etc. -- have inspired a new architecture, perhaps an evolution of the fall 2008 'cage' (think Jean Paul Gaultier).
Now if we could just get a wishbone stiletto to finish off the look, I would be one very happy girl.
