    I think these clothes/accessories are incredible! I haven't known the designer before so I'm glad to see this creative collection.
    I love the use of colours(it's like a shadow-light play,which turned out great)
    ,made the effect more dramatic.
    Secondly,the playfulness of the different materials are breathtaking.I have afeeling like I am not watching a beautiful fashion show but masterpieces of a very talented artist in an exhibition:) I would totally wear them!

    Great photographs. The silk knotted look on the black model is one of my favorite looks from Paris. The jewel tones a nice change of pace from all the neon I've been seeing.

    I sadly did not get to attend this show but looks like most unique collection that I've seen this season. Great photos as always.

    How do you select what you post? Is it based on your favourite pieces or the photo that strikes you the most?

    I saw the runway video on, and I have to say, Scott, you did Mr. Ackermann's collection justice with your photographs. Please forgive me if I sound patronizing, which I'm not. The lighting in the video was less than desirable making the collection look a little too dark and washed out. Now I realized that the color, the cut, and the silhouette of the every piece, including the sartorial detailing and accessories are beautiful and quite amazing. I kept wondering why the fashionistas kept saying that they were speechless and in tears after the show. Now I can see why. Thank you.

    its funny that you said that this is the show to beat, because when the first picture loaded I sat back and said "Now this is Fashion" Impeccable!

    GASP! The jewel tones, the styling, the leather and the shine!!! these girls look like respectable bad ass bond girls! I love how the hair further elongates the models as if they're gliding into the future at lightning speed! Oh look at me…getting carried away with the ! exclamation points, but this is so exciting!

    Oh Haider Ackermann has been one of my favorite designers for a while now. This collection was ravishing! I don't know how he drapes clothes the way he does; all I know is they are spectacular!

    -You should check out the interview with him in the January issue of W.

    A lot of ideas. Great cuts. A great knowledge of how to make a woman look beautiful & original.

    The palette is very dark though, as Anna Wintour would say.

    The fabrics here are so beautiful, paired with gorgeous colors and amazing designs. One of the best collections I will have to agree.

    totaly agree great shapes and the mix of fabrics is amazing.

    modern and cutting edge but still femmenine.

    he would be a breath of fresh air for Dior don't you think? i like him for the brand.

  51. ritournelleblog

    March 7, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    I have nothing against him and he *is* a good designer, but I find him to be a little overrated right now, especially with all this Dior gossip.

  52. Marie-Aimée

    March 7, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Am not the one to like dark colors but I LOOOOve the way he puts these dark colors together! Amazing amazing.

    Although these garments remind me of architecture, I do not think that they are wearable.

    I saw these runway photos and had one thought: not a single one of these outfits is wearable.

    They are creative, and I like the dark colors, but the flourishes are there seemingly to get my attention rather than to serve the clothing or the wearer.

    I especially don't like the long outfits with holes cut into them and fear for a woman tripping in them.

    I love the fabrics used in this collection, as well as the draping of it. The waist cinching belt on some of these is also a favorite of mine. Thanks for sharing.

    First — the shots are superb.

    Second — the architecture of Haider's cutting and his mix of shapes and rich colors are TOTALLY working for me!

    Third — I have to say it again — your photography is spot on!

    Haider Ackermann¬īs S/S11 collection was our favourite last season and with his new F/W 11 collection he fulfilled our expectations again, this time as a master colorist!

  90. muir mackean

    March 8, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    the majority of catwalk pictures are ghastly – studiedly miserable and emaciated models wearing preposterous concoctions most of which will never be seen again…in sharp contrast to your street shots, which show largely happy people who appear to know how to eat, wearing clothes they have chosen and like to wear…

    I've just looked at the collection and I don't know. Its a bit star trek. I can picture the jabberwocks and Obe Wan Kenobe getting around in this stuff on badly-animated foreign planets. Why does "good" fashion design have to amount to costumes? Ackerman is obviously prodigiously talented, but is fashion "better" if its wearable, or if its wearable art?

    Ah, I envy models that get to show the beauty of them.

    Fabrics are awesome, the shape and the detailing are too!
