Wearable Wednesday With Haider Ackermann


 I needed this- a collection referred to as Rockabilly Lord Byron by Style.com…..I have major love for good tailoring and this collection has some serious lines and fluorishes. How do you feel about it?

How can these models look so unhappy in such fabulousness? Are the shoes pinchy?

    Love it so…to pair the blue plaid with the fluid, vibrant top is so brave.and works so well. Love #2, but I would just about die happy if #4 were mine….would have to modify the bare midriff for me…of course.and up the neckline…

  2. Not sure about the top one to be honest. I love the lavishness of it all but the pyjama bottoms take the edge off the whole look methinks! No 2 is stunning. Sharp shoulders and luxurious fabric of the jacket is emphasised beautifully by the flowy chiffony skirt. Love it! No 3 and No 5 are a bit too Duran Duran for me. Been there, done that although probably not so expensively! And No 4 is very sleek though I could change that in seconds with my belly poking out! Thanks for posting. I love that you encourage me to see the work of designers that I otherwise would never have heard of 🙂

  3. I love the jacket from the top (not the pyjama bottoms, though), though I first thought it was on a man. I like it as menswear better, I think.

    I dabbled in modeling for about 10 seconds when I was young. Having other people tell me what to wear left me pretty pissy, too.

  4. When I saw the first picture, my first thought was “LOVE!” then I saw the second picture and my first thought was “SLIP! You need one.”

    After perusing the collection a bit more, I’ve decided that I love the fabrics but the approach to using them is not quite up my alley. I’d be happy to shop where they buy their fabric though!

  5. I love the fabric, I love some of the concepts, but like a lot of high fashion, it’s not all that wearable to me as is. I love the colours and feel of the second one, but as Andi said, a slip would be necessary. Really necessary. I’m actually surprised how much I like the strong shoulders, I still shudder with 80’s shoulders.

    I guess the other question about the models expression, why as a designer would you not want them to look happy? You rarely see models who look happy on a runway. Is it some great faux pas to smile?
