Haider Ackermann
Paris Fall 2009 RTW

Floor sweeping hemlines were quite prominent in Haider Ackermann’s Fall 2009 RTW collection.
While it seemed like everybody was sporting a maxi dress at one point or another during Summer, it will be interesting to see how many girls will adopt the maxi for their Winter wardrobes. Personally, I think the Winter maxi (dress or skirt) will only work if it is streamlined and in subdued, neutral colours i.e. no floaty, floral, bohemian-type maxis. I think the very first picture is a good example of how this look could translate into the Winter months (PS. I am in lust with that jacket).
