Haider Ackermann has quit menswear after one season, reports WWD. "The decision to present a one-season collection was a creative decision," Anne Chapelle, CEO of BVBA 32, the company that produces Ackermann's labels, told WWD. "Haider wanted to underline the image he made for his women's line with the man at her side. The men's collection will be added again at the time Haider wants to and it will not be linked to a season. Creativity cannot be forced into a time frame. It is the emotion of the moment being translated to a collection, which is presented and sold to retailers who believe in creativity as such." [WWD]
