Haider Ackermann SS 2011

Haider Ackermann SS 2011
These are the sort of clothes I'd wear if I had my own private island, especially the cobalt blue pleated dress, black "skirt" with cutouts at the hips, and the orange and black dress in the last row. It speaks to my alter ego that is samurai/aeon flux/sith...yes, I seize any opportunity to bring up the dark side. For a more thoughtful conversation of this collection, check out this video at Dapper Kid of Haider Ackermann in conversation with Maria Luisa.

  1. His designs are fabulous, but I see them almost more as art than clothing, they are very sculptural and I'm not sure how wearable they would be in real life. But as you say - if you had a private island! I admire you for being so adventurous in your taste of clothing, this is not Fashion 101 to put it that way.

  2. That collection must be my favorite of the season! It was perfect! Absolutely perfect! Drapings, cuts, obi belts, slits, pleats, colors, leather, stripes, origami, just name it!
    I agree about wearing it on the private island. :) I imagine immediately The Magus. Oh, yes! Perfect costumes for Magus! :) So, I now have to win in a lottery or something :)

  6. I loved the delicate black dress...I'd totally wear that (with lots of double sided tape).

  10. Beautiful clothes, I love the combination of being floaty and ethereal yet structured at the same time. Definitely time to invest in an island!

  11. it would be tough to do the whole look in reality, but as seperates i think there's real potential..? theres a certain glamour here but in a confident rather than overt/brash way.

  13. To use a Timberlake phrase, he's "bringing sexy back". I absolutely loved this collection and the FW11!

  14. sigh - this is perfection. when i read (somewhere and a while ago) that karl lagerfeld could theorethically see a worthy successor in haider ackerman i was relieved.

  15. the dresses he designs are beyond amazing. perfectly revealing while remaining classy. I pray I will never come across the black one (image 15) because I would probably have to find an obscene way to subsidize it as it's so perfect.
