Style.com had an article representing the skeletal-like themes of Spring 2009's shows. I just think it's interesting, because if they hadn't said something about skeletons, I wouldn't have thought of that correlation at all. When I see the following photos that are supposed to look like exoskeltons, the one central idea I immediately focus on is shreds of fabric and use of negative space between the spaces. And in some cases, only just structure.
