    Haider Ackermann might seem to be an overnight success, as he’s only been seriously reviewed in the press for the past three seasons. Someone less serene might feel a bit put out about that, as Ackermann has actually been operating for seven-and-a-half years. Typically, though, the Antwerp-trained designer—who’s been doing the same sort of laid-back, poetic clothes from the beginning—is delighted that acclaim didn’t come to him any earlier. “It’s given me time to start slowly and gradually put down roots,” he said as he applied the last touches to his collection. “And the deeper your roots, the more secure you feel.”

    Reaction to his clothes is now so tangible that it’s having a visible impact on how he’s designing for spring. “All my leather jackets already sold in August. I’m like, ‘Leather—in August? Really?’ That makes me feel good. So I thought, ‘Let’s do color!’” That palette—which includes orange, yellow, teal, and electric blue—is the surprise awaiting an audience which is more attuned to Ackermann’s cloudy monotones. Also to be anticipated: his spin on menswear for women, and a collection that he promises will come alive in movement.

    I think what I have sorely missed in Yohji Yamamoto's collection I will find in Ackermann's!

    Wow, those colour are unexpected! Otherwise it looks very much his style in terms of shapes and I'm liking it a lot so far.

    This and Rick Owens are my faves so far. Mostly because they both did something unexpected, and it turned out beautiful

    This looks really good, I love the color and the off the shoulder wrap tops look amazing. However, the draping looks a bit sloppy in certain areas; I'm going to blame this on the photos, for now.

    I'm thinking Haider Ackermann might be my favourite of this fashion month, just like it was for A/W. Love the cuts, even if not as precise as A/W, and love how he's bought colour to the table. I think it works best with the black looks with a pop of colour, but this really is a very strong collection in terms of both vision and the individual pieces.
