1. Patti Smith was there! And I’m pretty sure she gave Ann Demeulemeester a standing ovation at the end. That is all kinds of awesome.
2. The venue, Couvent des Cordeliers – an ancient convent on the banks of the river Charente, that features towering columns running down the centre of the catwalk. Very moody.
3. The two button, three quarter length blazer she does every season. It is a perfect piece of menswear.
4. But the not so great thing about today’s show was that if you were holding a standing-room only ticket like I was, you were forced to wait outside in the freezing rain for more than 30 minutes. The pitfalls of lowliness!
