Paris Fashion Week FW 12: Haider Ackermann, YSL, Rue du Mail

Who: Haider Ackermann
What it made us think of: How fabric might look flowing through a rainbow hourglass.
What we liked: The draping, cinching, structure, colors, layering, texture, everything. I want this collection to walk off the runway and into my closet. It's some of Haider Ackermann's best work ever.
Who: Yves Saint Laurent
What it made us think of: A sophisticated dominatrix who may also be a cult leader.
What we liked: Belts, leather, structure, chain mail, zippers, calla lily jewelry
What we didn't: Repetition
Who: Rue du Mail
What it made us think of: Variations on TV static and test patterns
What we liked: Color blocking, textures, cutouts, shoes
What we didn't: The variation of techniques often made it feel disjointed.
