    I guess the hottest s/s trend is looking like a f/w show

    did Ann leave her own company? This is beautiful. First collection from her I really like. Weird that both Gareth and Ann did the sleevetrains though.

    This is horrible. Banal, boring and super commercial. My least favourite Ann collection by a huge margin.

    Fuck this. Seriously.

    first ever Ann collection I like. No, I love. Absolutely beautiful. I really hope this is the direction she's going from now on.

    And commercial? Yeah ok, I'm drowning in the sea of women walking around in floor-length dresses in delicate fabrics with sleeves dragging on the asphalt (I wish though). Or wearing a bondage-like leather harness for a top. There's nothing commercial here, it's just finally well edited and just... just beautiful. Speaks for itself, really. If people miss all the dangly stuff, Gareth has you covered this SS13.

    Same for me. Simply beautiful and elegant.

    Very nice collection, beautiful and elegant. But for some reason I feel like it's missing something..

    Quite a different offering by Ann, I really like it . Almost seems to have a futuristic vibe when comparing to her previous collections. One of my favourite collections from her, definately her best S/S collection imo.

    I thought pretty much the same, but then I looked at the photos again and I believe they don't really do the clothes justice, especially the black on black looks. Personally I'd rather have this over the tacky/excessive topstitching details on jackets and the pyjama fabrics of last year.

    Polarization is good!

    After looking at good pictures, I quite like this. I see what others are saying that there is a bit of Ann missing, especially lack of tailoring and leather. It is a simpler and cleaner collection. But many elements are there - the lengths (very short or sweeping long), that grandeur, the romanticism.

    ...guys but very strange You talk when someone makes a commercial thing - all shout it - not that this is not so. I think - this is not the ANN, if considered from the point of view of the designer - as a person, I do not like! if you just ignore - the collection is very feminine, commercial and stylistically well!..

    There's indeed elements of what we associate with Demeulemeester
    in there, but this is getting a bit too clean to convince me, and there
    is definitely something not quiet right when Gareth Pugh's name is
    mentioned in here.

    Though I take comfort in that most of the time when I don't find it
    convincing it's a styling question and not the actual garments.

    Are you afraid of women, Doctor?
    Of course.

    I thought this collection was uninspiring and bland. First of all, there are no new shapes or ways to construct a garment, which in her older collections there is usually one strong proposal each collection (which is done in every way - long/short/sleeve/sleeveless - and in every fabric possible - cotton/silk/fur/wool). Here the only new idea, if it can be considered new, is a slit in the front of the sleeve, which comes as slits in tops and as zippers in jackets and coats.

    I don't imagine anyone really wearing the floor length sleeves anywhere although it certainly looks good in photos. But as Ann herself said before "I don't do this to be in magazines", then I wonder what is being offered here for her loyal customers? Because other than the sleeves, there are just shorts and long tailored jackets. I hope the actual collection in the showroom has more substance.

    Right? This plus the total disassociation from the menswear make me wonder what she does exactly.
    P.S. Ann is best known for her Renaissance fair costumes but it's also her least interesting work. The airy knits and amorphous non anatomical clothing are the best part of her work.

    I strongly disagree. Ann's tailoring is one of the few examples I've encountered where a piece may look like a regular jacket in a photo, but every panel in its construction is so well thought out that it makes the bod, sleeves and overall fit drape in a completely unique way.
