News off the press, When Karl Lagerfeld was asked about retiring from Chanel, he told French Magazine Numero, 'I have a contract for life so it all depends on who I would like to hand it to. At the moment I’d say Haider Ackermann.' Ackermann who is a Colombian designer is well respected in the industry, he designs his own label, produces both men's and women's wear, His designs are both elegant and creative. Check out the photo of Tila Swinton below wearing one of his pieces.
Lets hope if Ackermann takes on the role, he carries on the fantastic work of Lagerfeld and continue to produce fantastic pieces for Chanel, Karl has praised Ackermann. We can only wait and see.
