MEN AT WORK: Haider Ackermann, who counts Kanye West among devotees and who only started men’s wear for spring 2014, is about to land a major men’s  post. Word has it Berluti is zeroing in on a contract to make the Paris-based designer its new creative director. He is to succeed Alessandro Sartori, who launched the storied footwear brand into fashion and leather goods in 2011 and recently joined Ermenegildo Zegna, where he worked prior to Berluti. Acclaimed for his soigné women’s wear and artful dishabille, Ackermann has plied a rock-tinged dandy aesthetic for men’s wear, hinged on fancy dinner jackets, low-slung pants and, more recently, cool sweatshirts.
