She makes me want leather pants for my dark, romantic, leather daddy moods. Which is almost every day.

Was thinking for a while yesterday which eccentric designer I am a big fan of, then I came across something of his today, Henrik Vibskov, his stuff is in the same ball park as WVB and Bernard Wilhelm, though I think he makes more genuinely unique and visionary pieces/collections than the other two, which can at times look to be eccentric just for the sake of it. That said WVB and Bernard can be pretty great too, they just seem to be a bit less consistent that HV. <end offtopic>

Vibskov for awhile was mainly just ripping off BW. I guess he's doing more his own thing nowadays (i dunno, haven't really looked at his past 2 collections) but vibskov's stuff is a bit safer than what BW usually does. Vibskov indiv pieces that show up in boutiques and online are usually much more wearable than people think. I've never done acid but i'd imagine vibskov's shows would be amazing and scary on it. Still, i thought this was about ann d?

beirendonck was creating universes whilst vibskov was still swinging nut to nut but he's catching up fast - and will duly be seeing some of his work at spr+, amsterdam. i'm all for artists who cross creative borders and do amazing collaborations - those who stick out aesthetically are usually attacked by those who can't see past their boring mass produced tshirts.

If i had a baby and was filthy rich i'd probably kop the whole vibskov x quinny baby collection.

Love the designer, but have never seen a Demeulemeester piece in a size larger than 48 (maybe 50). I realize her bread is buttered in the Asian markets but that kind of sizing limitation precludes me from wearing anything but accessories.

Oddly enough my local Saks outlet (which is one of the most pitiful and low-end of it's kind) got in a couple Demeulemeester leather jackets a couple years back.

Sizing's actually ridiculously inconsistent with Ann D (I have a blazer in sz 40R that fits snug, but I'm definitely 38R...conversely a sz "Small" wool jacket fits somewhat loose on me, more like a real 40R). Get measurements, they just might fit you.

Bet the sweater was oversized for drape

Yeah measurements don't mean a stuff unless its structured shoulders on a jacket, even then you can't be sure it's too big or small considering the anti-fit of Ann D.

I love my pair but too small for me :(

Hi All!

 

This thread seems pretty dead but I was wondering if someone could identify this Ann D jacket/blazer. I found it at a local consignment store. 

 

 

It is a size XS making me think its a womens jacket. Has a traditional lapel, large center vent, and cropped sleeves. It is long and the most standout detail is the interesting way it buttons on both sides of the jacket.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is a cherub graphic sewn on the inside.

size XS makes me think it's a men's jacket actually.  I think AnnD women's jackets follow a numbered system (38, 40, 42, etc).  That could just be more recent seasons (not hands on familiar with AnnD pre2011 or so).  Picture of the tags on the jacket might help.

I've always kind of admired Ann D from afar without committing to much, but refining what I like and what I want to wear, her stuff seems to be a nice "bridge" between more "goth" brands and more traditional stuff (a la Dries). Hopefully this thread can kind of start running again, because I want to start getting more in depth with the brand/her work
