Haider Ackermann Womenswear F/W 2011
The Belgian designer hit another level of greatness with a sublimely executed collection… This was the general consensus in Paris this month.
Dazed and Confused has this to say…
Finally after a build up of consistently beautiful and thought-provoking collections, finally the crÃ¨me de la crÃ¨me of the fashion world all get it and understand that Ackermann is a master when it comes to seducing an audience with clothes.
His methods of seduction were on full display. High priestess-esque black coats belted at the waist trailed slowly as blocks of white were slowly introduced until a belted white robe that was crisply regal went past us. The tuxedo lapels mixed with Ackermannâ€™s particular take on kimono-wrap jackets and coats then ensued in leather, a material he knows how to get full impact out of. A sensual fluidity came with the satin dresses that could have been a haphazardly draped ultra-long sash but we knew it was all strategically placed on the body.
Ackermannâ€™s superb colour sensibility erupted at the combination of jewel tones. It felt like a full-blown culmination point of Ackermannâ€™s body of work, one that finally had everyone firmly and staunchly rooting for him.
Haider Ackermann is exclusive to 4.
