The designer has been named creative consultant to the luxury Belgian brand, effective immediately. The first collection under his oversight will launch online for the Autumn/Winter 2021 season.
Ackermann first found fame after launching his namesake luxury label in 2001, and his signature asymmetric, draped silhouettes and intricate constructions have since won him a dedicated following.
Ackermann will oversee the design of new collections at Maison Ullens, as well as the overall aesthetic of the house. Founded in 2009, Maison Ullens specialises in knitwear and currently operates three stores in New York, Colorado and Paris
