This is probably my favorite collection of all of fashion month, along with Phillip Lim and Peter Pilotto. Haider Ackermann actually is my favorite fashion house of all time. He uses the inspiration from himself and pajamas and designs them in a wearable way that they work outside the bed.
For his Spring 2012 collection he incorporated looks with a sense of rockability. Instead of going literal he kept the hair a bit more loose and the shoes a bit more soft. I love that look above. I want it in my closet at this moment. I just love every single piece in the look, the hoodie, the leather vest, the blazer, the pants, it is just perfect. I also love every single pair of plimsolls. They are probably one of the best footwear I have seen. This is what Paris Fashion Week should look like. Something you lust for and want at this moment, but know you can’t unless you have a big name like Janet Jackson. You can check out the amazing collection below.
I have to say that I am not too much of a fan of this collection, but it is not bad, I just don’t like the university theme in the beginning. I much prefer the darker looks, especially the one above. I love that she always incorporates a sense of boho each season though.
The collection featured some tie-dyed, graffiti, and patched jeans as well as some amazing knits. I think they are great pieces, but there seems to be a lack of luxury that her previous collection possessed. It just seems so accessible this season. You can click through some of the looks of the Isabel Marant Spring 2012 collection below.
I am really going through a trouser phase right now, especially some skinny ones. But right now the perfect ones seem to be a bit hard to find. I am into the whole 360 degree aesthetic of a trouser. Many just do the font and it just doesn’t cut it for me. These though, I think, may be the the ones that I have been asking for.
They are the Nudie Khaki Tight Trousers in Deep Soil. They are super skinny and have a trouser style front and back. They come in two washes, the one above and in a light gray. I have been told that these will be coming in black as well come Spring, so I cannot wait for those. I am actually dying for them. They’ll definitely be on my wishlist. Skinny black trousers seem to be a hard one to find. So picturing these in black, I think they’ll be perfect. You can click here to purchase these jeans at FARFETCH for $226.
Here is one of the videos to correspond with the highly anticipated Balmain diffusion line, Pierre Balmain. It holds the Balmain punk feel with all the zippers, tight fits, and slouchy tops. I think this collection will do well. I can’t wait to see the still pictures of the pieces. You can watch the video above to watch Abbey Lee Kershaw and Our Mountain prance around the city city in the clothing.
