Ann Demeulemeester is renown for the subtle, intriguing details that distinguish her work from other designers. Soft and three-dimensional, her tailoring highlights the wearer's movements while feeling very pleasant to wear. Aesthetically, Demeulemeester's garments make subtle and refined statements without compromising on avant-garde style. The designer's supreme talent is manifested in this classic leather jacket. It was originally designed in 2001 and showcased for S/S 2002 and A/W 2004. Being a Collection Blanche item, it is one of her quintessential pieces and stands out in its astounding beauty and tremendous attention to detail. We are pleased to also offer the original version of this jacket from S/S 2002.
The timeless design is military-inspired with a slightly asymmetric eight button closure. When open the peak lapels drape softly, creating the elegantly disheveled look Demeulemeester is known for. The cut is tailored with strong padded shoulders, a fitted shape and a slightly shorter back for an easy yet flattering silhouette. The jacket is made from a super soft goat nubuck with an exceptional softness and smooth texture that feels more like fabric than leather. One of Demeulemeester's signature materials, the leather has been waxed and distressed for a subtle patina with pronounced texture variations. Nubuck is a very luxurious and high quality leather that ages wonderfully over time.
The craftsmanship of this piece is second to none, with numerous details that demonstrate the attention paid to its design. The large silver buttons were one of S/S 2002's most iconic details. With an antique finish and subtly textured surface, they are some of the most beautiful buttons we have ever seen. The shoulders have sharp geometrical panels that enhance their strong outline, while perfectly executed darts on the chest shape the contoured silhouette. The collar is finished with military triangular topstitching. The waist features two double welt pockets, while the cuffs have Demeulemeester's characteristic 'bell' shape: In combination with the elongated sleeves, they produce an intimate glove-like sensation. The interior is fully lined in the designer's classic smooth striped viscose/acetate sateen.
Overall, this versatile and elegant piece is a wonderful manifestation of Demeulemeester's beautiful sartorial universe. Its beautiful fabrics and feminine silhouette will make it an absolutely stand-out staple in any wardrobe.
