Last summer, Ann Demeulemeester delivered a “goth wedding” was held for the luxury label’s Spring/Summer 2019 showcase. Now, taking to Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Ann Demeulemeester introduces a Fall/Winter 2019 range inspired by the spirits and concepts of rebellion and rock.

Ann Demeulemeester creative director Sébastien Meunier has designed a range of bold, forward-thinking outerwear pieces, pants, tops and accessories — most of which stay true to a darker-toned, seasonally-appropriate color palette — that pull much of their stylistic cues from the aesthetics that were present during periods when both rock music and fashion were equally irreverent and defiant. “Fashion is like rock music. There is no rock music without rebellion,” Meunier tells Vogue. Specifically, Meunier looked to the early ’80s for his latest major influences. “The time was full of super-activity, and it was a bit anarchic. I went for something that had this energy, a big mix, more rock, and less romantic, than what I’ve done before.”

“Ann Demeulemeester said there’s no good rock music without anarchy, and there’s no good fashion without anarchy and rebellion,” Meunier added during a conversation with WWD.
