Editorial

For the second season, Haider Ackermann showed a co-ed collection in which the women’s looks mirrored the men’s but, the designer was at pains to point out, were not unisex. Rather, using the same materials for both women and men gave the clothes a sense of fluid interchangeability. The focus was on rigorous tailoring tempered by graphic details, butterfly prints and red, white and black colour blocking on extra-long coats and jackets with contrasting trims. Trousers had a boyfriend cut, high waist or skinny with side bands, paired with simple white T-shirts or blouses with contrasting loose sleeves. Patterns were used even on the accessories – long gloves, pointed ankle boots and neck scarves tied around the waist like a belt.
