Sartorial Sonnet

“How do I love thee?

Haider Ackermann SS11 Red Black and White on
Haider Ackermann's folded ribbons are poetry for the body.

Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth…

Haider Ackermann SS11 Red Black and White Suit on
The colour combination of my couture dreams.

…and breadth…

Haider Ackermann SS11 Black and Red Stripes on
Shoulder stand: this will have the blood rushing to your head in an instant. Ommmm.

…and height

Haider Ackermann SS11 Pant Suit and Cape on
This takes me back...way my future.

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight…”

Sometimes only poetry can express our feelings towards something we love.

Words are from Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet XLIII – I just borrowed a phrase or two. Read the beautiful collection of her sonnets in Sonnets from the Portuguese. Incidentally, please feel free to buy me the leather-bound 1916 edition – or any of the pieces above, if your heart so desires.
