Haider Ackermann

Haider Ackermann showed off his talents with a superbly cut, origami-inspired offer.

The look With one of the most accomplished collections during the Paris schedule, Haider Ackermann is destined for big things. The designer showed off his talents with a superbly cut, origami-inspired offer.

Key pieces A white wool skirt was cut into origami-like folds and caused the model to totter like a geisha, while the same fabric was employed on casual, low-slung trousers. A monochrome story and cutting referenced work by Japanese designers such as Rei Kawakubo by also incorporating elements of menswear design. Waists were tied with wide belt constructions, and rich navy silk harem-style trousers stood out as did sharply tailored jackets.

Commercial appeal The origami-style cutting and rich colour palette are the two design elements at play here that have the most commercial appeal.
