I had a big weird out-of-body experience this morning. It didn’t last very long but the 15 minutes seemed like hours and the hours were a full of grace kind of moment. I’ll tell you why. I was watching the Ann Demeulemeester men’s fall 2011 collection and I was blown away. One by one somber, gangly and almost pre-adolescent looking models (I’m sure they weren’t) walked out onto the runway wearing the most ultra chic and architectural refined clothes. Each piece looking proper, edgy, modern, polished and stimulating since Demeulemeester was on fire. Not literally, but her show was hot! Unlike her spring 2011 collection which featured two main colors back and white; this collection was some color. Not too many colors, but something different to the usual Demeulemeester palette. Her usual somber gray and black were paired with rays of orange, red, blue and tints of ashy white. Everything about this presentation was right; the attention to detail(s) and modern construction clearly mastered by Demeulemeester.
