Yes, it's back from 97. I've always said that she is the master of working with movement, and this article just confirmed that! I'm good <pats himself>

hmmm...good article. I appreciate her view more now, that I can define what about her resonates most with me...the nonchalance in elegant dressing.

Interesting and informative!

It's funny because I was in Barneys today to get a complete look at the fall collections and my wife was interested in a few of Ann's pieces. Some of the buckles and straps and the way they crisscrossed made me think of Helmut Lang.

Actually,her belts wrap around two or three times(depending on one's size) rather than just that slung look Helmut does. Except,I don't think she started doing those belts till the mid-90's. And she started her business in '85 which I believe is a year before Helmut did. Its irrelevent however because for a time,I think they had loads in common with each other-only she was about the volume and movement and he was more about a stiffer structure.

Btw,a friend of mine that was an assistant to Ann whilst at the Academy told me Ann is extremely timid in person.

She is very intelligent. I love her ideas on femininity, "gravity", introverted clothes, emotions and black.
