It's a crazy fur fiesta at the Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2008 runway show in Paris. Rows of Mongolian lamb coats and jackets. It's overwhelming. Ann Demeulemesster is famous for her complicated layering technics and it definitely shows and the fleece was sheared and manipulated in artful ways. The same airy movement was duplicated by the fringing spilling from pockets, dripping from hat brims. And the collection’s defining piece—a waistcoat with a big crimped collar—acted as a flattering frame for the face.
I was trying to duplicate the look with this earthy-brown jacket with faux-fur lining. (It was very heavy) and completed the whole Ann Demeulemeester look with a fur stole that I bought in London. Tied in the two together with Versace studded belt and was wearing Jean Paul Gaultier fingerless gloves. Aviator is from Gucci. Plaid blue pants are from Zara worn with a vintage well-worn boots and vintage leather bag as a contrast to the total rough look. It is once again a very couture look but I'm happy with it. Totally gonna wear it when the weather is getting colder in January.
