Fashion designer Haider Ackermann is all about beauty. Not in any formal sense of the word, but in his own poetic and twisted way that has managed to seduce and conquer the fashion world and brought the shy, sensitive designer into focus. So much, actually, that entering the studio in Paris, where these pictures were taken, Haider claimed the shoot to be ’the very last he would ever do’. He just doesn’t like his picture taken, as he says. But here it is, anyway, with an interview performed by concept-store owner and Scandinavian fashion character, Rasmus Storm. We believe it was worth the hassle.
