Belgian designer Ann Demuelemeester showed her first catwalk show in Paris for spring 1992. Featuring a destructive edge, the avant-garde punk style featured a quiet femininity that critics adored. The label has always been influenced by menswear and practicality. Distressed fabrics are paired with clean cut lines to create visual interest and highlight the collections’ poetic nature. The 2021 Archive collection will bridge Ann Demeleumeester’s 30-year history with the ‘New Beginning’ under Claudio Antonioli’s stewardship through a look into the brand’s strong heritage, allowing the signature elements to reemerge: poetry and obscurity, sophistication and rock’n’roll. The looks are an expression of the times today as they were when they were first presented: a testament to Ann Demeleumeester’s ability to interpret the zeitgeist. This archive collection is a way to homage the brand’s roots and start a process of innovation for future collections to come.
