Handsome. Haider Ackermann AW19

There’s no way you can go wrong with Haider Ackermann. “They’re handsome people—handsome girls and handsome boys,” the designer said after his show. The new collection is  the designer’s second attempt at combining women’s and men’s on one runway, and he succeeded with a smooth, beautifully synchronised line-up. “It’s not unisex; it’s about borrowing” – Ackermann summed up. He used the same materials for women and men, which gives the clothes a sense of fluidity. But also, while the models walked in pairs – girl and boy, boy and boy, girl and girl – you just couldn’t stop thinking about how good a couple would look wearing matching Ackermann bomber jackets, kimono coats, super slim pants and hot or studded leather boots. And when you note that the soundtrack was Jane and Serge’s “Je T’aime . . . Moi Non Plus”… it all made sense right away. Not only clothes were important in this show. There was love in the air. As pretty much always, I’m giving high marks to Haider.
