Fashion journalist Luke Leitch nailed it in his piece about Haider Ackermann’s latest collection, coining the phrase “Acker-type archetype” to refer to that style that draws perpetually on itself, recognisable yet always different and always desirable. There were dandy Acker-jackets in olive green or blue iridescent velvet, silk Acker-suit separates, Acker-layering with hanging strings and neck scarves flowing down a bare chest. And of course the slim rock-star Acker-trousers, in velvet or shiny leather but also pyjama-like silk pants worn with pointed lace-ups or ankle boots – all done in precious, lascivious fabrics and eye-catching tints that clashed with black and metallic silver.
