Paris Fashion Week: Ann Demeulemeester


 

 

Ann Demeulemeester produced the most beautiful show I saw during fashion week, which was quite a bonus given that it was the first time I was invited to attend one of her presentations!

Standing ticket in hand, I patiently queued with the hordes of Japanese Demeulemeester fans (and DressMeBest's Jess Wu) listening to the extremely talented PRs from Michele Montagne switch rapidly between fluent English. French and Japanese - certainly the most gifted and efficient press officers I've come across so far - until finally I could enter the Couvent des Cordeliers and take my place standing on the carpet of sand that filled the entire cloistered hallway. The models marched out to the sound of whistling winds like nomadic travellers striding off into the dessert. Lighter than her usual collections but no less romantic in its way, Ann focussed on detailed layering of cotton, linen and silks in black, white, sand and nude. Many looks were finished with fabric corsages or transparent tulle veils edged with fine black sequins which draped around the calves. The location, the soundtrack and the clothes were wondrous, and I saw many, many pieces which will please both die-hard Demeulemeester lovers and bring new converts into the fold.
