Back in November, it was reported that Karl Lagerfeld wanted Haider Ackermann to replace him as the creative director of Chanel once he retired. When looking at Ackermann’s fall 2011 collection, it is hard to imagine his sleek and sometimes even futuristic vision at the renowned fashion house. But now with rumors swirling about him being a possible Galliano successor at Dior–Ackermann proved he is definitely a designer to watch when he went to new heights today, showing a masterful play on the masculine and the feminine. Asymmetrical silhouettes with velvet, silk and satin gathered to one side seemed to be a dominate theme for the autumn season. Outerwear featured strong puffed up shoulders, slinky silhouettes and wide leather belts.
