The 'Felpato Shirt' by Haider Ackermann

This oversized ‘Felpato’ (‘brushed material’ in Italian) shirt by Haider Ackermann has a brushed felt texture. The shirt is in a bold washed International Klein Blue (IKB) shade: IKB is a deep blue hue first mixed by the French artist Yves Klein and comes from its heavy reliance on Ultramarine. IKB was a key colour in both Haider Ackermann and Givenchy’s SS16 shows and is a brilliant statement tone for the warmer months. Both the wash and texture of the Felpato shirt strongly resembles that of a classic French ‘Chore’ jacket (which I have been on the hunt for) whilst the cut reminded me of a baggy painter shirt that you could imagine Picasso throwing on…although you wouldn’t want to get paint on this piece...
Haider Ackermann is a Colombian native, educated at the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1994. His perfectionist demeanor is duly noted, and he was expelled in 1997 for not completing any of his assigned collections. If he was required to complete five silhouettes, he would only finish three, however these were of exceptional quality. This was a fault attributed to his desire to produce collections that lived up to his desired standards. In Autumn/Winter 2002 Ackermann self-financed his first women's collection in Paris and from then on Ackermann has been approached to head up several prominent design houses including Dior and Margiela.

In 2011 Ackermann was invited to be guest designer at the influential Pitti Immagine showcase in Florence, where he unveiled his first menswear capsule collection much to critical acclaim. Two years later he presented his first full menswear line for SS14 in Paris; following resounding fanfare for this collection, both Kanye West and A$AP Rocky (arguably the most current, dominant menswear fashion icon’s) have been seen donning his pieces. Influenced by cultural differences, Ackermann is known for his masterful use of layers and draping in an avant-garde aesthetic. I believe his fashion blurs the line between dress codes with the use of layered tailoring, experimental designs and fine fabrics all draped in a contemporary, youthful silhouette.

Constructed from cotton, this piece has been cut with an oversized fit and boasts notch lapels, a front button closure and buttoned cuffs at the top of each sleeve (pictured above). A hybrid between a shirt and a jacket, this Felpato shirt creation is a great transitional piece. I’ve rolled the statement shirts' extremely long sleeves up and worn it over a simple white pocket t-shirt, my everyday black denim and my Wyatt boots (which I haven’t stopped wearing since I bought them!).
