Haider Ackermann – ‘Paradise Birds on Acid’ SS17

May 25th, 2017

Growing up, designer Haider Ackermann was constantly on the move. His father was a cartographer and would bundle up the family and take them on journeys to locales such as Algeria, Chad and Ethiopia, before Ackermann settled down in the Netherlands to attend high school.

Hints of these travels can be detected in his clothes; the dramatic drape of a silk robe, or the concertina of a sleeve. But the notion of movement is what Ackerman finds most seductive, his garments simultaneously revealing and concealing the wearer’s skin. It is this movement of women that haunts him most:

“You know, when you’re walking down the middle of this very, very narrow street, and a woman passes you like a ghost? It’s like you see those white veils, but then suddenly you will hear all the sounds – the fabric brushing, the clink of jewellery – and it’s just so mysterious. I think that’s what attracted me when I was so young – that idea of these women who were passing by all the time. You didn’t know what would happen. Like sometimes you would see some detail or discover a flash of skin of the knees. It’s quite beautiful and very, very sensual at the same time.”

– Interview Magazine, 2011

Describing the collection as ‘Paradise Birds on Acid’ and featuring fluttering ribbons and couture details, Poepke is proud to have garments from Haider Ackermann’s SS2017 collection, in store now.
