There is lot of exposed flesh in the collection. I love the off the shoulder and bare back looks the most.

I love the Obi style belts.  Everything in this collection seems so opulent. I guess that’s what being draped in silk and leather does.

Haider Ackermann comes to Toronto

Haider Ackermann comes to TorontoThere was small group of people to gathered to see the Haider Ackermann Fall 2010 fashion show at the ROM. It was a real treat.  119 Corbo is the exclusive Toronto retailer for Haider Ackermann and they were responsible for bringing him to the city. Holt Renfrew Calgary and Vancouver will carry Haider in the fall.

I wrote about the Haider Ackermann Fall Winter 2010 show during Paris fashion week. This presentation wasn’t the full collection but it was amazing to see the pieces up close. Haider is a master of materials. The draping and architectural details were phenomenal. The collection and music almost brought a tear to my eye. It’s the same emotional reaction that I get when I go to the symphony or opera.  I wish I had the access to play and touch the clothing. I’m going to have to befriend Linda Perisa, owner of 119 Corbo.

My photos were completely shit. I still have to learn how to take good low light shots with the Olympus E-PL1. The two shots I’ve posted are not what I intended but I like the result. I didn’t talk to Haider or get a photo with him. It was a bit of a scramble and I just on looked from afar. I love his relaxed style and fantastic boots. Since my photos turned out crap for the most part I’m providing you guys with the full length Paris show on video.

Haider Ackermann Fall 2010 Collection is the exception to my no black and brown together rule. I love the undulating collars that can be wrapped around the neck and the peplums that can be removed. The clothing is very architectural in nature. I love the use of the zippers to give the curves some stiffness.

The cocoon coats are a great contrast to the more elaborate parts of the collection. The laser cut leather was a very nice touch.
