@Haider Ackermann SS19I’m sure that just like us you also love a good fashion show. So let’s take back to June when Raf Simons showed his SS19 runway show, he proclaimed the end of graphic hoodies, explaining to press backstage that he was in search of “a new outline.”
If anyone’s going to show us a reason to dress up, though, it’s Haider Ackermann. While the world was going streetwear crazy. Haider was refining his own vision of rogueish, swashbuckling clothing, and the designer’s unisex show in Paris offered as convincing an argument as any that fashion should start dressing up again.
In an era when the days of relaxed dress codes and luxury hoodies, the suit is like a secret weapon than an everyday essential, and Haider’s tailoring, with its loose cut and cropped, roomy legs, are both casual and flashy enough for modern tastes. His intricately laser-cut shirts, silk pajamas, and sunburst jacquards are there for when the occasion calls for a sartorial earthquake.
There’s constant reshuffling at fashion week these days, highlighting how blurry the lines are between men’s and women’s wardrobes in this day and age.
Haider Ackermann’s collections are a joy to behold.
