Ann Demeulemeester Delivers a Dark, Androgynous Fall 2014 Offering (Runway Review)

The Look: Black, black and more black garments — with just a few white or metallic mustard touches for good measure. Plenty of tough outerwear and twisted-bodice dresses were present in the collection, as were more simple silhouettes, like V-neck T-shirt dresses and bell-sleeved tunics. It's a drapey look that Ann Demeulemeester champions, and one of androgyny. These pieces do feel at least a little feminine, but there are male models present in the show (wearing furry overcoats and sparkly socks) to remind us that truly anything goes. A trio of white outfits (in silhouettes seen earlier in the show) was a nice palette cleanser.   

The Accessories: Heels with a colorblocked, rounded platform.

The Beauty: Slicked-back, wet-look hair and strong eyebrows.

The Casting: A few male models were interspersed throughout the show, cementing the idea that these are unisex wares.

The Takeaway: If black-coated androgyny is what you're after, look no further.
