Haider Ackermann F/W 2009

I've been trying to put words to Ackermann's latest collection for almost half an hour now, but they all seem to be failing me. All that needs to be said is that I am undoubtedly obsessed with his color palette, use of texture, and ability to couple a rough (and perfectly tailored) jacket over a really slinky, feminine skirt. He's always stayed just under my radar during fashion week -- I've known his name but never his designs. After this season, that fact will be true no more. Ackermann has clearly worked his way up to hero status in both me and Marissa's hearts.

In unrelated news, Daphne Guinness has officially legitimized all the shopping I've ever done at Forever 21. Here's hoping their "design team" catches wind of that second jacket pictured. A girl can dream.

The colors are stunning in this collection. I love how the skirt on the right drapes so perfectly.
