In Review: Haider Ackermann

Monday, October 3, 2011

The Haider Ackermann collection was stellar.┬áThe line gestured a kind of ‘powerhouse 80’s tomboy meets Le Smoking sultan’. Bold audacious colors found their way onto boxy mix-matched suits, oversized silk trousers and leather vests. It was a fetching slant of masculinity; the kind of collection that could be dissected and still hold its own with each article. The highlights of the collection were found in the blue scarf-blouse paired with the emerald green silk trousers and purple flats and the other strong-look was the paisley printed silk pants with a leather vest and the over-the-top orange blouse that seemed to be a froth of silk, this look combusted when met with a pair of pink oxfords. The masculine facets of the collection exceeded that of the ‘feminine’ dresses that were sheer and overexposing- It was a failed attempt of being ethereal and attractive.
