tousle-haired gang of rock / poet people

Ann Demeulemeester's Spring 2007 "Ann is my friend. She makes clothes that make me feel like myself. The clothes of my dreams, of my youth." So said Patti Smith, before loping off backstage to think out the improvised voice-over she'd promised as part of Ann Demeulemeester's show. What followed were 20 of those good Demeulemeester minutes in which the idea of running away to be a full-time member of her tousle-haired gang of rock/poet people suddenly seems completely compelling. Call it what you like—a look, a formula, a uniform—there is always some new slant in the layers of dark, slouchy, traily coats, jackets, shirts, pants, and skirts in Demeulemeester's repertoire. As a fashion shortcut to looking elegantly wasted without drugs, it works."
