Collection autumn/winter 2017
Sébastien Meunier has found all-encompassing inspiration in Ann Demeulemeester’s own designs since he was appointed as creative director in 2015. For this autumn/winter 2017 collection, he infused this close-knit aesthetic kinship with an unexpected glamour, visible in romantic pieces cut from delicate feminine silk and lace fabrics. These fine silhouettes were toughened up by black leather statement pieces featuring fitted gloves, thigh-high boots, loosely fitted trousers and jackets. The monochrome black and white hues were accentuated by crushed velvet fabrics in dark plum, copper orange and aquatic blue. Carefully layered silhouettes were complemented by headpieces crafted from lace veils, feathered scarves and detailed cuffs.
