Belgian Designers such as Ann Demeulemeester and Haider Ackermann come from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, and see women as creatures who want “to come out of the shadows and into the light.” On this gloomy day, I’m feeling dark, but I’ve never felt this close to light.
This Ann Demeulemeester leather hatis as cool as a hat can get.
This long black Haider dress is a flowy spring dream with mystical powers.
I also see this Ann Demeulemeester scarf with these long pants as one of the most empowering outfits ever.
