Haider Ackermann

Haider Ackermann’s first proper menswear collection is imbued with the graceful splendour associated with his womenswear collections.

Haider Ackermann Interview


One of our favourite designers, Haider Ackermann, spoke with Eugene Rabkin of Style Zeitgeist following his Spring Summer 2016 Menswear Collection at Galliera Museum earlier this year. “There is an unapologetic luxury in Ackermann’s work, to the point of decadence, as if his ideal woman (and more recently, man) spends her time lounging around in pajamas so…

Haider Ackermann Showroom Visit, Paris


Of all the showrooms that we visited during Paris Fashion Week, it was the chic industrial space occupied by Haider Ackermann that perhaps had the most charm. Located just north of the Marais district, the ever so slightly decaying interior provided the perfect space for Ackermann’s Autumn Winter 14 collection which featured a palette of…

According to company reps, the line, which debuted at Florence’s Pitti Uomo in June 2010, was supposed to be a one-time deal, a single collection to complement his increasingly high-profile women’s line.

Haider Ackermann Menswear Debut


Haider Ackermann’s much-anticipated men’s debut proved to be the crown jewel of Pitti Uomo in Florence last week. Of course, for a designer best known for treading the chromosomal divide, the show proved less a departure than a subtle subversion of his signature androgyny.
