Cage Fighter Time!

First brought to my attention by SusieBubble, looking so cute with her interpretation, "Body Cages" have been spotted on both couture and pret-a-porter runways.
For Berlin Fashion week, Karstadt New Generation Award provided spectators with a looser, much softer version similar to Jean Paul Gaultier "Body Cage." Between the two I say I can't decide which I like more. JPG's has a defined silhouette which I quite like, but the one from KNGA looks so comfortable. Plus to have the body cage at all provides structure, so is JPG's too strict?

Now I can look like a cage fighter wherever I go.

Anyway, so far I've been more into the menswear at Berlin Fashion Week then the womenswear, especially Michalsky's. Or maybe thats just because the cute models are confusing my judgement.

i'm a big fan of susie's interpretation of this look. she makes it wearable and it doesn't look too constricting.
