If It's Got Wings...

From Left: 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent, Printed Silk Blouse, $295 at; Andrew Gn dress, Spring 2008 Runway
When I first saw Andrew Gn's Spring 2008 collection, I noticed that his dresses had a Hitchcock vibe that was both goth and feminine, dark and yet bright. The small specks of black, which undoubtedly look like birds, are less precious than polka-dots, and more mysterious. Cynthia Vincent's blouse is a cheaper but no less beautiful version of the Andrew Gn dress, and the smaller specks signify a further potential menace--that is, if you were as haunted by "The Birds" as much as I was.
