More Pleats

Not the first time I've posted about black pleats, probably not the last time either. I loved all the pleat work in last year's Haider Ackermann spring collection. What I like about pleats is they can be graceful, elegant, austere, violent, and avant-garde all at the same time.

  1. I'm drawn to them but can never muster the courage to wear them. Love the collage here, especially the centre image. Grey and black can never go wrong.

  2. Gorgeous examples! I loved the pleats in Ackermann too, and wish I were taller/leaner to wear skirts like the ones above...

  3. judging from these images, i could not agree more.
    i'm on the hunt for an avant-garde pleated number...perhaps a scarf.

  5. I like pleats too, but I don't wear long skirts or dresses, so I'm looking for a knee-length dress. Last year's Haider Ackermann collection was my favourite of his, those Japanese kimono-knots that finished off many of the creations were amazing.
