Fashion likes to play to the odd ball when it comes to picking out new body parts for reflection under the erotic gaze and Spring 2009 showed us the rise of the scapula. Two capstone shows, Kris Van Assche at the beginning of Paris and Lanvin at the end, highlighted the rise of the scapula and perhaps dare we say it the dismise of the clavicle as the new unusual body part for objectification. Perhaps the scapula is less perplexing than the clavicle but it is certainly more daring giving us all a chance to stare at a beautiful woman's back as she goes into her own powerful future. We saw variations on the theme as well at Karl Lagerfeld, Sonia Ryiel and Hussein Chalayan as well.
