No More Menswear for Haider Ackermann

Editors and buyers were abuzz when revered designer Haider Ackermann showed his first ever menswear collection this past June at Pitti L'Uomo in Florence. To be expected, it mirrored major themes found in his womenswear collections, such as proportional playfulness and a masterful use of layering, creating tension between streamlined poise and slovenly dishabille. Somehow, the collection is able to convey both without seeming forced or scattered, a trait the Columbian-born designer, who trained at the Antwerp Academy, has shown over the past eight years. Ironically, now as his first threads for men hit stores, the news is hitting that he will be halting his menswear collections until further notice. His representative released this statement: "Haider wanted to underline the image he made for his women's line with the man at her side. The men's collection will be added again at the time Haider wants to and it will not be linked to a season. Creativity cannot be forced into a time frame. It is the emotion of the moment being translated to a collection, which is presented and sold to retailers who believe in creativity as such."
