Haider Ackermann, one of Tilda Swinton’s favorite designers, plans to launch menswear. He’ll show his first men’s looks at the Pitti W trade show in Florence on June 16. The Paris-based designer told WWD, “We’re searching for the man behind the Ackermann woman. It’s just a start.” He plans to commercialize some pieces for next season and said he finds men’s harder than women’s. “Women’s wear is something I fantasize, but with men’s wear, you are comparing it to yourself. I am the consumer.” Men, you have something to look forward to.
