Last November, Ann Demeulemeester left her namesake company when she retired from the fashion industry. The iconic designer has been keeping busy by writing a hardcover book for Rizzoli. The tome is slated for a mid-October release and features an introduction by musician Patti Smith. Rizzoli released a statement saying Demeulemeester’s book is “the first and highly personal perspective into the work and processes of Ann Demeulemeester, one of the most influential and inspiring fashion designers of our time.” The publisher added the hardcover will “approximate some of the mystery and detailing associated with her brand.” The Belgian designer’s book will retail for $100 and will contain more than 1,000 photographs. Three different designers have succeeded Demeulemeester after her retirement, creatively running her brand.
