Ann Demeulemeester Spring Summer Women Collection 2013 in Paris (itw)

Surrounding the butterfly theme, Ann Demeulemeester develops duality, between the fragility and strength of the insect. Resulting in outfits of lightness, structured by a corset belt or a harness style in leather. On the back of large, long dresses, chains evoke the skeleton of a butterfly. The designer adds sleeves that float or that un-zip, jackets are cut to a point and fall at the front. The movement is created by lightweight materials around different silks while the designer finds her classics around wool, cotton, viscose and of course leathers to express force.

Interview Ann Demeulemeester:The idea that inspired me was actually the butterfly, and I was intrigued by the duality of the butterfly and I decided to work on this aspect.

I wanted to concentrate on what intrigued me in a butterfly and it's the contrast between this insect and something which is completely like an angel, so I think the insect and the angel side can sort of explain where I was going

There are contrasts with these very outlined and precise cuts, and things that are also very abstract where the fabric is very important. To give more movement, volumes are very long, very large, very generous in contrast with things that are very precise, very outlined, very modern in fact.
