It seems everywhere I look, there they are - the YSL caged booties for Spring 09. Every fashion magazine has featured them multiple times and, as soon as the weather starts to warm up here in New York, I'm sure I'll be seeing them on the feet of chic women all over the city. It's common knowledge that fashion influences design, but these cagey cuties made me wonder if Stefano Pilati may have turned to some well known design classics for his inspiration.
