Ann Demeulemeester: Ready-to-wear SS16

The Ann Demeulemeester girl knows what she wants. And this season she wants to be dominated. There’s sex in the air and she loves the smell of it. Sticks and stones may break her bones but chains and whips excite her. You know – that kind of thing. “It is about the extreme elegance of women; how tall, how bright, how mysterious they can be. I pushed them in a super-elegant, kinky, sadomasochist form,” said designer Alberto Giacometti of the show. And kinky it certainly was – bare breasts revealed by sheer tops, wrapped leather, a lean power suit, whilst harnesses came up and around the neck. S&M wear for the stylish woman about town? Finally.
