Haider Ackermann, Paris Autumn/Winter 2009

23 04 2009

So sorry I haven’t been too consistent with posting my favorite collections from Autumn season.  I think I have been trying to catch up with life and with my big pile of magazine subscriptions.

Here is a wonderful collection.  This label has been flying under the fashion radar.  Haider Ackermann is a Colombian born designer.  He was trained in Antwerp.    Ackermann managed to drape fabric into romantic, sinuous dresses that is able to combine a certain type of Latin drama with a melancholic sensibility that is a hallmark of Belgian design.


This season, when there is no real confident trend emerging and other designers are maniacally scrambling for ideas.  Ackermann’s distinct aesthetic signature is able to stand above other designers who seems to be confused as to how to react to the current climate. There was a fluidity with this collection.  The result was that not only were the clothes exceptionally beautiful, but the confidence that showed through the pieces is what might possibly and finally take Ackermann out of the underground and into foreground.
