BEAUTY: Clothing--Ann Demeulemeester
Ann Demeulemeester's creative director Sébastien Meunier says he wanted to take the brand in an edgier direction. "Fashion is like rock music. There is no rock music without rebellion," he said. The house's Fall-Winter '19-'20 collection at Paris Fashion Week was indeed a bit rock n' roll, a bit neo-psychedelia, a bit punk, a bit grunge (I can see The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, The Cult, Nirvana...). But despite all that, the Romantic, swashbuckling roots of the house, its DNA if you will, still showed through. I personally love to add touches from other time periods to my own personal clothing choices, and a little bit of Edwardian glam never hurt anyone.
