SPLIT PERSONALITY: “One day I wear Ann and one day I wear Haider,” Anne Chapelle, the Belgian entrepreneur who has a controlling interest in Ann Demeulemeester and Haider Ackermann, told WWD on Wednesday night at a cocktail at the Belgian Ambassador Residence in Paris. (In case you’re curious, it was her Haider day.)
The event was to celebrate dual anniversaries coming up in 2016: 30 years for Demeulemeester and 10 for Ackermann.
“I am not 30,” said Ann Demeulemeester designer Sébastien Meunier.
Chapelle said a new Haider Ackermann shops-in-shop is set to open on Oct. 28 in the Galleria Department Store in Seoul.
