The Hourglass Waist: Fendi and Haider Ackermann Fall 2012

For Fall 2012, both Fendi and Haider Ackermann drew me in with their sumptuous treatment of the hourglass waist.

Between baroque tops and streamlined pencil skirts, Fendi interposed flared belt-slash-waspies paneled in rich dark colors and textures.

Haider Ackermann went architectural on the hips, folding and layering below the cinched waist to evoke associations of kimonos and queen bees.

These two designers have made me see the hourglass figure in an entirely new, exciting way.
