Spotted! Laser Cut Leather

0 Posted by - June 7, 2010 - Designers, Spotted!


A notable alumni of the Antwerp Fashion Academy of Fine Arts, Haider Ackermann’s Fall Winter 2010-11 collection features intricate laser cut leather, which fuses fetish symbols with the artisanal sensibilities of delicate lace work. Elevating a collection that explored commercial possibilities more than ever before, the laser cut leather added a welcome edge of glamour, albeit in a subverted style. Full length dresses scraped the floor with deep slits and extravagant flounces,full-body jumpsuits worn under billowing black capes, the leather detailing continuing around the head and extending onto the face.  Peplum details jutted from the hip, representing a more wearable take on the fabrication, complementing dramatic, undulating collars, executed in soft ribbed leather.
