Haider Ackermann has been looming just outside of center stage for years. Like many before him, he started in womenswear before venturing into menswear and has since garnered respect from many of fashion’s heavyweights. Years after a five-month internship with Dior’s John Galliano, he was approached to succeed Galliano, after declining the proposed succession of Martin Margiela. In 2011, Karl Lagerfeld said he saw Ackermann as his ideal successor at Chanel. So why does he sit adjacent to other labels?

 

His signature draping, knotting, and gathering can be found in everything from his shoes to coats, giving his pieces a striking aesthetic. He utilizes expert tailoring and juxtaposes them with fluid, casual styling which has become increasingly popular with the world’s top fashion houses. His namesake label should be more of a household name. But many times, fashion is waves ahead of the masses.

 

Ackermann is also known for his utilization of gender neutral silhouettes, and until recent years, gender has been a black and white subject to the general consensus. As gender fluidity and identity come to the forefront of the public forum, it seems that popular culture is finally gaining ground on fashion. He holds true to his vices in his latest collection with beautiful tailoring and astute use of fabrics. His collection is dark, angsty, and angular and presents a final product worthy of rock stars.

For Spring Summer 2016, RSVP Gallery is excited to welcome the arrival of Haider Ackermann. As perhaps one of the virtuoso designers of his generation, the Colombian-born, Antwerp-educated Haider Ackermann has proven himself in the industry as one of the best out there, amassing praises from critics and fellow designers alike. At a first glance, it’s easy to be fooled by the simple forms of the collection. But these pieces aren’t your typical stagnant ‘elevated’ basics that have become so omnipresent in streetwear today. For Ackermann, the idea is to innovate and not elevate: with his masterful tailoring and unique layering, Ackermann pushes the boundaries of traditional silhouettes, blurring the fine line between the casual and the formal.

 

For a refreshingly casual style that maintains its luxury, shop the Haider Ackermann SS’16 collection today.
