Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Haider Ackermann produced a very sharp collection based around modern, clean lines and a rather cold palette for the fall/winter 2014-15 Paris shows.
The designer debuted a number of floor-sweeping blazers with straight lines, along with slim-fit pants in either wool or leather, with silk blouses that plunged way beneath the breast plate. Some of the more voluminous shapes were shorter jackets trimmed in fur and belted tightly in leather.
Ackermann’s color palette is subdued but also stark, with steely greys, earthy taupes, and dark blacks. Large houndstooth wool prints in dark brown and black lent a break to the rather industrious tones on jackets and long, straight dresses, while skin-tight pants were printed in gunmetal python-like textures. Most of the skinny trousers fell right above the ankle, solidifying what we already acknowledged to be a collection built primarily for those ladies that just exude cool.
