Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2011 Menswear
With a slight whiff of the Victorian, the Fall 2011 menswear collection from Ann Demeulemeester was dark, to say the least. Layering was the other more obvious motif, with angular-cut jackets, all superbly done, framing the body, forming looks that were truly edgy.
Through-out, colour was let in the admittedly monochromatic design aesthetic, but never light, if you get my drift. "It's not deconstruction," the designer said in a backstage interview before the show. "It's a new way to give movement."
