Sebastien Meunier’s Spring 2017 Ann Demeulemeester offering gave us deconstructed suiting, psychiatric touches, and beautifully raw, punk-hearted odes to the color palette (namely, midnight black and crisp white) that the house commands. 

The collection featured undone tuxedo top coats (missing an arm, or worn with the buttons on the back, as if twisted around), suit shirting held together by cotton corsets, linen blazers with frayed edges and ties falling to the ground, and a pair of wide-legged black tuxedo pants with one leg falling open. 

The formal and traditionally masculine, came apart and undone.  

It was a slightly surrealistic interpretation. 

It was also romantic. There was a girl wearing a netted shirt with “true black” sewn on the front, imprinted in scraggly writing to mimic a stick-and-poke tattoo. There was something very pure, and very youthful, about these declarative touches. 

Kirsten Owen walked.
