Haider Ackermann’s intricately studied, loose layers took inspiration from iconic rocker Keith Richards. The limp, drapey tailoring in dark seersucker, panne velvet varsity jackets, dressing gown coats in silk jacquard and skinny striped T-shirts looked louche and romantic thrown together with his trademark mock negligence. Patent leather pants in the midst of this soft men’s wear tangle were an exciting departure.
Ackermann mixed two pastel shades of matte/satin psychedelic check silk for a tailored jacket and drop crotch trouser mismatched suit that miraculously worked; proof that fashion rules are made to be broken for those who know how to mix. RV
