Haider Ackermann Spring Summer 2014

Usually Haider Ackermann impresses me no end, but this season it was a very different story. There was no lack of his sharp tailoring, dramatic asymmetrical drapes, and effortlessly cool girls storming down the catwalk, but the designs themselves were a massive disappointment. The draping was clumsy and strange, the silhouettes were unflattering, and the gratuitous display of nipples was frankly boring.

I love…

these rock’n’roll, almost teddy boy suits.

this off-the-shoulder dress.

I loathe…

metallic bermudas worn with a train. Nope.

    Again, I have to agree. I feel like quite a few designers are regurgitating their signatures looks without really breaking any new ground. Sad really, as he was tipped as one to watch for a while there.
