The ever romantic approach of Ann Demeulemeester has been replaced with a clinical, more experimental emotion. Turning a collection of flawless, pure white styles, in asymmetrical and lean silhouettes, with a slight military influence, which was subdued in the midst of all the whiteness. All of a sudden the entire collection repeated itself look for look, but this time in black, with leather replacing what was cotton. “I wanted to see what would happen,” said Demeulemeester about her experiment, “things look quite different. It’s a different emotion.” It was a beautiful (experiment) collection to say the least, however, there still were those hints of romanticism Demeulemeester is well known for.
