Whether it is Fall or Winter, or in this case Spring & Summer Haider Ackermann's work always gives me the same fashion chills. 90% of the time that I am blogging I have Lady GaGa - Bad Romance blasting in my hearbeat earrphones. Right when the "Walk-Walk Fashion Baby" part comes along my fingers begin to type more and more rapidly especially when im writing about a collection that I love.. That just happened here, now for the second time in a row during online encounters with Haider Acerkmann I am excitingly and frantically typing my keyboard away.. The exquisite technique and the unforgettable details, whether or not it is the paneled leathers being tied at waist completing a look or twists and tangles situated at the waist Haider Ackerman is always on point!!
There was so much to look at and so much to want to look at.. The strong and vibrant jewel tones were almost orgasmic. Staying a little true to trend hints of color-blocking were present and done a little differently and more subtly i.e. hidden under garments or used as lining so not really seen but present when in movement or as a trim around a piece... whatever it was it was gorgeous and it fit the edgy looks absolutely perfectly. There were some looks that came across as sub-arabian suburban modern house wife (caped trouser looks) and some that came off as plain and simple goddess, I loved the mixture..
Rarely do I find myself this captivated by pleating but it was used so perfectly by Ackermann, either being layered or somehow contorted they added the perfect element to some of the collections pieces. I definitely predict much success with this collection because of its edge and sense to be wearable even with such dramatic details and features. I already can see some of these looks walking the red carpet at the Costume Gala at the MET in NY for 2011 or walking the streets of New York 5th avenue or SoHo.. ahh I need to go back to NY asap!!
