The chained masks worn on the models in the Ann Demeulemeester Spring 2010 Paris Fashion Week presentation combined with the winged print in her separates for a continuing theme Style.com's Nicole Phelps called a conceit between man and nature.
It's a compelling argument. After all, women are frequently referred to as 'birds,' and aren't runway shows similar to birdcages in the way that fashions (as well as the models wearing them) are scrutinized like parakeets on display? I love the themes presented in the Ann Demeulemeester Spring 2010 collection--almost as much as the fashions themselves.
