Hider Ackermann SS 2011 & FW 2011

Haider Ackermann’s lyrical collection began in Trappist silence, moved through stately seventeenth century chords, and ended on a strident modern note—and to a ringing crescendo of applause. 
The superbly paced show opened with austerely beautiful ensembles that layered different elements of black. Watteau-backed jackets or coats swung over satin-collared dressing gowns and hip-slouched pants, or skirts cut in artful spirals. These monochromatic looks were subtly punctuated with single elements of white, building to an all-white outfit, and eventually with elements of amethyst or mallard, until Ackermann sent out looks colored in extraordinary tonal nuances—layerings of teal green, forest green, kingfisher blue, and deep jade, for example—that proved him a master colorist.  - Vogue Magazine 

I loved several of the pieces, very dramatic I must say... Over all very seductive collections and Ackermann use of color combinations is absolutely B.r.i.l.l.i.a.n.t.... Although some of the pieces I had mixed feelings about I would defiantly wear most of what went down the run way! Great ideas for both your Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter wardrobe!
