I feel ashamed, because I totally missed this! But nothing is too late…what I am talking about?

A month ago, between the 23 and 25 of July in Colombia was happening the 24th edition of Colombia Moda (a sort of their fashion week) and the launching show was Haider Ackermann´s 10 year’s retrospective. Haider was born in Colombia then adopted by French parents when he was nine (he lived in Ethiopia, Chad, and Algeria before his family moved in the Netherlands) and now based in Paris. After many years, he returned to Colombia only last year for the first time after leaving.

Before the show happened, he also received a key to the city of Medellin from the Mayor, Aníbal Gaviria. The 10 year retrospective of Ackermann´s aesthetic was concentrated 38 runway looks, featuring his well-known color palette, black, plum, olive green, dark blue, silver grey, petrol, white,.. perfectly merged with his favorite fabric, silk. A nice, cohesive collection, that do not gives you a feeling that some pieces are like 10 years old, but looks really fresh and so timeless.

Happy 10th Haider, my dearest!
