This time, Haider Ackermann wanted to create clothes that felt “inhabited”. No matter that the meaning was clearer to the designer than the audience, because the signature Ackermann style was still immediately recognisable and packed with personality, starting from the hats. The Japanese inspiration that is a big part of the Ackermann style code was seen in various looks, especially in the languid flowers and buds scattered over silk shirts, pyjama-suits, wraparound coats and velvet brocade bombers. Delicate floral patterns climbed across soft trousers and provided contrast on jacket lapels. In the absence of flowers, the sheen of velvet and bright colours such as yellow and various shades of blue and green were the focus.
