For his first co-ed collection, Haider Ackermann produced pairs of women’s and men’s looks that demonstrated and confirmed the Belgian designer’s tailoring versatility. They were mainly suits or separates, with two types of jacket: structured with defined shoulders and lean lines, or slightly oversize, with rounded drop shoulders, while trousers were most tapered, though some softer varieties had sporty side bands. In the same vein, coats and blazers came in looser, fluid kimono styles or were more fitted in vibrant colours and intricate laser cuts, like those decorating the short sleeves of shirts. There were a couple of dresses but most of the looks were masculine, further confirming that the ‘unisex’ concept continues to drive the designers’ work.
