Ann Demeulemeester SS/00 Patti Smith Beaded Sheer Tunic
The Spring/Summer 2000 collection was an iconic collection, in collaboration with Patti Smith, a long term friend of Ann Demeulemeester. Through this close friendship Ann had worked on two collaborative projects with patti smith. The first of those being the SS/00 Collection titled “Woolgathering” which takes it’s name from a short autobiographical novel published by Smith in 1992.
Ann took excerpts from Smith’s writings & embroidered them onto tulle overlay which she delicately draped over pieces inspired by Patti’s notably androgynous style. Ann took aspects from Patti Smith's most notable style & incorporated her own twist into it. Together they had managed to produce a captivating yet thought-provoking collection in a beautiful blend which maintained both the poet's & the designers aesthetics.
