Ann Demeulemeester S/S 2010 / PFW / Day four

Ann Demeulemeester proposes a look that goes beyond the vagaries of fashion, so well ingrained in her repertoire is the dark, romantic rock-chick aesthetic she loves. The Belgian designer hit all the right notes on the familiar riff by condensing into a few clear ideas a collection that consisted mainly of tailored jackets, languorous worn-in blousons, vests, coats with zippered vents on the side and long, flowing skirts. The silhouette was wistful and pretty in a Gothic way. Metal cords were used to create decorative flourishes while a top made of leather bands provided a bit of sexual charge. Composed completely in black and white, the collection got a bit of levity in the form of an abstract seagull print. Every now and then, one could use a pair of wings to fly away from the rest of the fashion flock.
