Unusual draping, avant-garde silhouettes and a masterful use of hardware are the hallmarks of all things Haider Ackermann. The Columbian-born, French-raised designer drew upon his cross-cultural upbringing to launch his eponymous label in 2001. The result is sharp, form-conscious clothing, shoes and accessories oftentimes marked by spiraling cutouts and provocatively placed zippers. Ackermann’s bags and leggings are consistently among his top-sellers, thanks to his mix of streamlined shapes and ultramodern details. As for his footwear: Think mesh stiletto heels, sexy multi-strap sandals, and ankle boots with chic leather trim.
Sophisticated silhouettes and feminine draping play with a gothic aesthetic in this cutting-edge selection from Ann Demeuelemeester, Haider Ackermann, Rick Owens and Morgane Le Faye. Fans of avant-garde and rock-chic style will love pieces like Rick Owens’ mesh-bodice dress, featuring an illusion bodice, an open back and skin-baring cutouts. And Morgane Le Faye brings the drama with a wrap-front dress that has a netted, barely there bodice and a feathered skirt.
Forget cookie-cutter clothing: These four designers are breaking the mold as they play with oversize proportions, asymmetrical tailoring and unexpected fabrics. Choose among fashion-forward creations by Belgian cult sensation Ann Demeulemeester, Colombian couturier Haider Ackermann, Japanese avant-garde designer Yohji Yamamoto and his daughter Limi Feu.
The fashion world adores Haider Ackermann’s ethereal garments, and this incredible collection exclusive to Noir features his airy gowns, delicate blouses and innovative jackets. Float into the room wearing one of Ackermann’s floor-sweeping, silk-chiffon creations and all eyes will be on you. Or top off flowing trousers with a menswear-inspired blazer that has a decidedly feminine silhouette. You won’t want to cover up any of Ackermann’s striking looks, but if you must, his tie-belt coats have the same sophisticated details as his other dazzling pieces.
Oftentimes, a woman looks sexiest when she’s rocking some gender-bending threads. Take the pieces in this sale, which lend a sharply tailored edge to the female form. Look for strong-shouldered blazers, baggy, drop-crotch slacks and crisp button-downs, boasting slim and swingy fits.
