Haider Ackermann Fall 2011 Runway Review

Haider Ackermann is on a roll. Much like last season, his fan base is growing by the minute, especially due to current rumors of his move to Dior or Givenchy. Whether or not this is true, he showed what will go down as his most divine collection yet. His latest outing proved to be another magnum opus, brimming with his signature aesthetics and edged-up glamour. Beginning with darks and jewel tones, the palette progressed into new territory – ivory. Vibrant, luxurious silks reflected light up and down the female body to create an ultra-slimming effect undoubtedly a 'pro' in most women's minds. Leather jackets offset by exuberant velvet and silk wide leg pants and scarf collar tops felt perfectly edited, refined-yet-edgy.

Where Ackermann delved into darker, deeper realms in his last season, this collection focused more on color, shape, and structure. Oversized, heavy-duty belts worn beneath the bosom added just the amount of edge Ackermann devotees swoon for, but not too much: the lighter the silhouette the better, this time around. Rich lightweight silk and sequined gowns showed side slits while blazer sleeves were tucked just above the elbow. His trademark tuck, wrap, and drape style looked as seminal as ever – at some points even creating powerful superhero-like forms, proving this collection one not only to covet but to live by.
