FILA Announces Collab With Haider Ackerman

Including menswear, womenswear and accessories.

FILA just announced a collaboration with French designer Haider Ackermann, set to drop later this year. Known for his unique sense of color, Ackermann is set to design a range of menswear, womenswear and accessories.

“I was extremely surprised when I was contacted by FILA with the idea to collaborate. Unknown things make my heart beat faster because I believe in the power of the unexpected, so I willingly took on the challenge. In visiting the extensive FILA archives I was struck by how elegant sportsmen were on the playing field back in the day. My aim is to elaborate on that, keeping the feeling of unexpectedness that is so important for me,” says Ackermann in a press release.

“Giving [Ackermann] the possibility to dive into our archives in Biella opened an unprecedented creative landscape for the brand,” adds FILA’s global chairman Gene Yoon. “Haider Ackermann’s fashion DNA merged with the FILA heritage in sports is a hyper-contemporary combination that represents the latest evolution of FILA to be forefront in sports, style and fashion,” Yoon continues.

Little else is known about the upcoming collection, however, the result is due to be unveiled with a physical fashion show, set to take place in Manchester on November 17. Speaking to Business of Fashion about the decision, the designer notes that “Manchester has an intriguing mix of colliding cultures. It is a place where we hear the voices of the youth — the wave they create in sports, music and literature. And I wanted to focus on this unique point of view.”

The collaboration with Ackermann follows FILA’s recent partnerships with Playboy and London-based label Aries, offering a different direction for the brand.

Stay tuned for further details.
