Haider Ackermann continues to hold the fashion world in his magical grasp with architectural designs and coolly contemporary draping techniques.
The aim of Haider Ackermann’s FW16 collection is to bring joy and happiness to his clients. “It’s a tough world outside and I want to have this gracefulness, this brightness, happiness”, Ackermann says after a superb runway show. Velvet and sparkle certainly help to achieve this vision. Copper-coloured velvet gowns with slits that reach the hip and fluid overcoats in green houndstooth patterns will make dressing up an absolute pleasure this season.
Since launching at Paris Fashion Week in 2001, Haider Ackermann has captivated the fashion industry with his seemingly unfussy cuts, asymmetric linear work and altogether utterly modern aesthetic. Ackermann’s signature sculpting and shaping have earned his designs the approval of revered style icons such as Tilda Swinton, Penelope Cruz and Victoria Beckham.
