On the occasion of Pitti Immagine Uomo 99 on PittiConnect and curated by Polimoda, the newest episode of Polimoda Duets, a series of documentary interview videos involving some of the most outstanding cultural figures of our time, features fashion designer Haider Ackermann.

Born in Colombia, Paris-based designer Haider Ackermann is a draping virtuoso with an envious avant-garde aesthetic. During his thought-provoking conversation with Filep Motwary, Editor-at-Large of Vogue Greece, Curator, Author, and Fashion Critic, Ackermann chats about the need for fashion, the lessons he’s learned over the course of his 20-year career, and what makes a collection great.

“Fashion is a necessity. Fashion is culture,” states Ackermann at the beginning of his Polimoda Duets. “Culture is essential. We need to read, we need to listen to music, we need to look at movies, we need to feel alive. It is an essential necessity. It all leads to a dream. Let’s keep on dreaming.”
