HAIDER ACKERMANN FW2014
I think the looks would be significantly less interesting with more conventional pants. The coats make the headlines but the depth is provided by everything else. I really like this stuff. Whether I could actually wear any of it is another question, but it's making me think and that's good.
Agree that the pants could be a bit less tight and I'm not very fond of the footwear.
Like Sipang said, I think the silhouette is better with some more volume from the hips down.

The overall look is fantastic though and feels very unique. Love the colors scheme and patterns as well.
Who stock this?
It's always struck me as a tough brand - either you go full on tilda swinton or you do...something else. Looking at the more basic pieces on the racks feels occasionally futile, like you buy the stunners and then you need all the rest to fill it in. I don't know if that's fair, since it's not really different from a lot of brands, and maybe speaks to the cohesiveness of the collections - the price makes it hard to appreciate at anything but a long distance though.
Women's silhouettes are great - and I've always been on board with the men's pants. Gives it all a more militaristic/maybe gaucho vibe.
