The construction of the clothes reminds me of Balenciaga. The silhouettes bear a resemblance to Dior. The beautiful blending of these two in his fall 2012 collection lies in Haider Ackermann’s own talent. Those fabric foldings that have become an Ackermann signature, the fabulous pairing of high waist trousers and plunging neckline blouses, corset belts further outlining the body-conscious shapes or sculpting the voluminous looks, an incredibly beautiful colour palette and his even more incredible sense of mixing up the autumn hues. Dramatic and feminine, artistic and sometimes surprisingly simple. Whenever I experience the feeling I had when I saw this collection I remember why I love fashion so much.
I hope you had a lovely weekend and I wish you to make the best of this brand new week!
