Picked up this bomber. I've wanted a Haider bomber for years and after seeing this for an insane price I had to scoop it up. Let's just hope I like the fit.

How're you planning on wearing it?
Cropped trousers without a doubt. I think white shirts will look really good with it. Definitely some light colors. For footwear I think boots will do the trick, although I need some loafers and laced shoes in the future. But I need to have it in hand first to really see how it fits on me and what will look best with it.

Haider bombers are very cool, but often very particular in shape. Cropped and boxy for the ones I have tried. Some thought needs to go into the styling.
Sure, we'll see when it comes in. It's gonna be fun at least.

Does anybody have any idea what’s going on with Haider?
The webstore has been down for months, he didn’t show anything for SS21.
I had heard some rumblings early in the pandemic that he was shutting down but I figured that was bullshit, it wasn’t from what I would call reliable people and he’s independent and widely adored so I’d think people would be lining up to invest if he wanted to go that route. Unless he’s just over it and wants to do something else but I didn’t get that vibe either?

Fuuuuck
I wonder why I thought he was still independent? This sucks if Haider goes under.
I guess not:



You are also the owner of the Haider Ackermann label. A few months ago it sounded that you wanted to sell that too.
Chapelle: “We have not reached an agreement on that.”


Because that brand is too difficult financially?
Chapelle: ‘Haider Ackermann is a popular name, but sales are not going along. I did everything I could to include the label in the deal, but it didn’t work out. There are other conversations going on, but you have to find someone who wants to invest in a start-up, as it were, who wants to root for new growth. ‘


And if you don’t find it, will Haider Ackermann survive?
Chapelle: ‘I have to look at the numbers, and today I am recording a mega loss with the brand. You can plan your expenses very carefully, if your income is halved, partly because a number of large customers go bankrupt, you cannot just straighten that out. ‘
‘Added to this is the crisis in the retail trade. I don’t see online sales growing as fast as the rate at which retail is disappearing. Yet I believe that contact in the store will continue to prevail over time, especially for brands that rely on a story. It is a special moment. Will online save everything? That is wishful thinking in this industry. ‘

Very unfortunate, yeah. Can't really complain since I'm technically part of the problem, to be fair. I only ever buy Haider on very deep sale since the retail prices are often ridiculous.

Haider could move into any fashion house and shake things up. I just hope he can remain semi-independent.
