Ann Demeulemeester 2010 Spring/Summer Collection
With tailored, slightly oversize jackets worn with slim cigarette pants topped by leather cummerbunds and no shirts, the nature-versus-man conceit produced one of Demeulemeester's most seductive collections ever.
There was a lot of bare skin underneath that moto jacket with lapels made of draped zippers; shrunken leather waistcoats, some without backs, didn't leave much to the imagination, either. The effect was never vulgar, though, thanks to leather bandeaus that covered the bust. Speaking of excesses, the bird prints were certainly plentiful for a designer who made her name in the minimalist nineties.
