First moments of September weren’t that bad at all. At around 7 am, on my way to school, Haider Ackermann posted a photo of Berluti logo on his Instagram, tagging it with “A NEW JOURNEY”. In other words, my favourite menswear designer (of course I love his women’s collection, too, but that’s off the topic) has been appointed the new creative director of Italian luxury house, which is famous for its legacy of shoe-making since 1895. The clash of traditional tailoring and Ackermann’s signature, rock-man-slash-poet aesthetic will definitely become the most explosive moment of upcoming men’s season. I’m dying to see Haider’s take on a widely recognized fashion house.
