The King of Cool

My two favorite looks from Haider Ackermann's fall collection are uniquely his and so fucking sexy and sophisticated. His mix of textures and materials was absolutely superb.

Just take a look at that first look, a long nubby pencil skirt worn with a leather and velvet jacket/bodice situation cinched at the waist by a huge black corset-belt and worn with leather gloves and what looks to be like a leather scarf. SO MANY THINGS but they are all in perfect harmony.

Then there's the borderline scandalous trompe l'oeil dress that looks like an oversized sweater draped over one shoulder with a sequin skirt that's falling down on one side. It's pretty much my favorite thing I've seen in the runways recently. It's very over-the-top luxurious but in a total sowhatwhocares way.


Plus, LOOK AT THE BACK VIEW.
UGHH. SO SO SO SO SO INCREDIBLE.



ps. my opinion still stands in the event that the last look is actually a sweater and a cut-out skirt.
