Ann Demeulemeester place in fashion’s pantheon is all but assured. But she’s still got battles to wage. “I wanted to prove that color can fit into my world, too,” she said after a show that brought almost unprecedented shades into her realms. It opened with deep-wine purples and grew to include flambéed orange and sea blue, too.
That’s not to say the shift in palette radically altered Demeulemeester’s perspective. Ann’s man is, as ever, a Romantic and a sojourner. The Oriental resonances of the shapes she showed for Spring underscored this. Side-tied silk kimono tops took the place of waistcoats, bubbling out from beneath jackets, trailing sashes behind.
