As the original sports brand that daringly opened up sportswear views well beyond the sports field, FILA keeps pushing boundaries, nurturing unexpected collaborations and surprising couplings that further extend its field of action.

As a new chapter in this ongoing series of progressive crossings, FILA announces the collaboration with Haider Ackermann. The French designer, known for the multicultural richness and unique sense of color, is the purveyor of an emotional take on elegance.

Coming from opposite ends of the fashion spectrum, yet guided by an identical quest for authenticity and style as matter, Haider Ackermann and FILA make for a decidedly unexpected, hence exciting, coupling.

“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 Haider Ackermann.

“I’ve always admired Haider Ackermann’s creativity. Giving him the possibility to dive into our archives in Biella opened an unprecedented creative landscape for the brand. 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” says Gene Yoon – Global Chairman at Fila.

Haider Ackermann will design a collection of menswear, womenswear, and accessories for FILA, which will be unveiled with a fashion show in Manchester on Thursday, November 17th.
