Ann Demeulemeester Womenswear Autumn Winter 2011, Paris
This season’s new collection was a poetic and fantastical return to what Demeulemeester does best.
Last season, Ann Demeulemeester tried her hand at wearable abstract art to purposefully go to an experimental place but this seasons show was about poetically playing out with familiar elements – feathers, lace-up detailing, fringing – to reach the heights of seduction through what she knows best.
It was the sort of high grade consistency that so few manage to sustain and whilst much of what we saw today was familiar, the mythical creatures such as the fawn that Demeulemeester was inspired by to make female crossovers with, provided the vital bit of magic to produce fantastical pieces such as an all over goat hair one-piece that was sprayed with fiery tones.
Ann Demeulemeester is exclusive to 4.
