Paris: Haider Ackermann’s new collection continued the exploration on modern nonchalant dandies with poetic attitude. Ackermann’s signature silhouettes were re-imagined this season in opulent fabrics and jewel tones – velvet and leather in jade green and purple tones were used on biker-style gilets and tailored blazers. Long robe coats and slouchy cashmere knits were styled with low-cut trousers and tasseled scarves. Boxy military coats, utility-inspired track pants and cadet hats highlighted the designer’s military influence throughout the lineup. Ackermann’s collection was poetic and decadent; and it worked. – Diego Sanchez
