Spring 2009 Ann Demeulemeester Runway Bib Necklace

One of the most coveted of all Demeulemeester pieces is this dramatic and bold runway bib made of a cascade of black rhinestones. Style.com said of this collection and of these bibs in particular:

The power of an Ann Demeulemeester show is that even if you aren't a card-carrying member of her club, there's something in it for you.....What surprised most about this beautiful collection were the short cotton jersey T-shirt dresses, draped and gathered in a way that evoked both the twenties and tunics. Her liberal use of crystals also felt new. She embroidered them in medallions on vests and softly wrapped dresses or, hitting upon one of the season's recurring themes, strung them like long fringe from the choker collars of high-necked tops. Of course, that was less a case of Demeuelemeester chasing trends than it was a happy coincidence. Happy is the way her audience felt as they left the show.  

This piece was a definitive look from the runway presentation and was seen on the final three looks of the show - looks 37, 38 and 39, pictured here (it was also shown in white on look 35, not shown). Very rare and very chic. Excellent consdition

Ties to close with the ties and choker piece made of shoestrings. The fromt bib is made of strands of hand set black rhinestones with the ends left raw intentionally

The front choker is 2.5"high and the beads add a 24" drop past that. The ties that goes around the neck are 82" from end to end
