Haider Ackermann Spring 2012 Collection is Darkly Whimsical

The Haider Ackermann Spring 2012 collection is an anthology of moody draping and strong female character.

The collection is a beautiful curation of wispy fabrics and strong tailored detailing. The combination evokes a punk-ass attitude with a feminine twist. The result is a sensual and strong look. Some pieces boast other-worldy auras, including sheer veils, deep hoods, and wide-shouldered wraps. Keeping the whimsical collation crisp are menswear loafer shoes in feminine colours and textures, and heavy leather vests.

The designer says of the line, "We’ve been doing elongated silhouettes reaching the sky for seasons ... there’s so much high heels and sexiness that now it’s nice to have an army of Lord Byrons coming your way!"
