Soft and elegant androgyny at Haider Ackermann

Paris: Haider Ackermann sent out a collection for Spring/Summer 2015 that ticked all the right boxes. True to his signature tailoring, beautifully cut trousers, jackets and coats were languidly draped on the body in fluid, soft light layers of sheer silks, crepes and satin – all bathed in a soft palette of cosmetic hues of nude, beige, powdery white, chocolate and dove grey. Ackerman always possesses a keen sensibility when it comes to mixing the masculine and the feminine and this was no exception, diaphanous layers of frothy silk georgette were worn provocatively under cropped, tailored jackets or layered over billowing trousers. –Lizzy Bowring
