“I was in search of simplicity,” Ackermann said backstage, and women around the world are rejoicing. Not only did he create lucidity within the clothes he sent done the runway, but a collection with a chic, elegant and graceful slant on the menswear for women trend. A collection that will make you want to, as Ackermann encouraged his models, “to face life with gracefulness and just go.”
Standouts were those incredible snake-skin cropped pants, short jackets that had the designer’s signature pinched peplum at the back, and black crepe dresses — one whose top’s fabric delicately skimmed down the body until mid-thigh. Brilliant!!
