Haider first caught my attention with his amazing Spring 2012 collection which was full of heavy silk, ruffling and draping. It made a huge impression on me and it seemed so sexy in a not very obvious way! For me, Haider is the master of mixing prints, patterns and colours and his every show and collection is a visual masterpiece.
This time the colour palette is much softer, from pale pink, through to my beloved mauve to moss green and a super trendy shade this year - marsala. This may be caused by Haider's inspiration for this collection - “I was thinking about broken flowers - I always have to go dark!” he said. “But in the end it's much softer than I could ever have imagined.” Again, there is a lot of layering, draping and ruffling and deconstruction. Haider is fantastic when it comes to using different kinds of fabrics, from lightweight chiffon and silk to heavy suede, cashmere and distressed sweatshirt cotton. Perfection!
