Sébastian Meunier displayed a stronger, more relevant direction for Ann Demeulemeester 2016 RTW. The artistic director puts a fetishistic spin on the brand’s signature floaty romance. The bondage accents and emphasis on sheerness instantly put the lineup in a sexy context.
The models all wore black-and-white leather harnesses with thick collars and a thin vertical strip that bisected the torso over tight. “It is about the extreme elegance of women; how tall, how bright, how mysterious they can be. I pushed them in a super-elegant, kinky, sadomasochist form,” Sebastian explained. Although there are softer element in this collection like silk overcoats in a monochromatic print and jackets in softly acid, blurrily animal greens and yellows, overall Ann Demeulemeester Spring 2016 RTW was definitively black, gothic, like a fashion-folkloric crow.
For those who enjoy Demeulemeester’s poetic allure, this was too strong for a sense of melancholy, but still pleasure to watch. (Text Teuku Ajie)
