Shortly after Haider Ackermann‘s Paris runway show this weekend, The Daily Telegraph‘s Hilary Alexander caught up with him and asked a few not-so-pointed questions about his future in fashion. He’s been largely touted as one of the front runners in the race to replace John Galliano at Dior, and while Alexander didn’t get a straight answer out of him about whether or not he’s going to sign a contract with LVMH, she did get him to admit that there are “places I would like to go.”
Ackermann compared the situation to a love affair, saying that “you just have to meet the right person and look together in the same direction.”
He elaborated, without pressure, that the confines of a house as storied and watched as Dior might actually liberate his design process.
“You know sometimes, yeah you have a repertoire of your own and sometimes you’re thinking like, OK, you would like something else to express. And the code of another house might help. So I don’t know. We’ll see.”
We’ll see indeed. Watch:
