There is perhaps no designer on the scene right now as exciting and as innovative as Haider Ackermann. Yes, we know, that is a very bold statement, but take one look at any of the Colombian designer’s collections and you won’t have any other choice but to agree with us.
On this Tuesday Throwback, we take a look at Ackermann’s Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear show. Flowy pants, delectably constructed blazers and sheer skirts abound, mostly in iridescent pop colours and amazing blues.
The genius of Haider Ackermann lies in his inimitable draping abilities and his grandiose use of leather. Often asymmetrical, always modern, his style is resolutely feminine and oozes refined sophistication. One of his uses is the androgynous actress Tilda Swinton (who is capable of looking elegant in just about anything).
If one were to recreate some of these amazing suits, Télio’s Majesty Taffeta (style 33442) could come in handy, as well as Télio’s Icy Chiffon (style 35322, colour 02) for the draped garments.
We’ve been living for Haider Ackermann since his first collection in 2001 and our beyond excited for the future, if you haven’t checked out his Spring 2015 collection, you must! The colour palette is to die for!
Fashion Week can’t come soon enough!
