Swiss Smile

Swiss Smile

Since the 19th century, St. Gallen has been known worldwide for its exquisite embroidery. Albert Kriemler made it a signature of Akris and continues to push the envelope when it comes to crafting the most modern embroidery. Case in point: Resort 19’s Lip embroidery.

Modern and Pop Art have a thing with lips. Think Salvador Dali’s Lip jewelry and “Mae West” lip-shaped sofa, Andy Warhol and a plethora of posters from back in the day. Geta Brătescu, Albert Kriemler´s muse for his Resort 19 collection, created her own smoldering lips art in her iconic “Portrait” collage. The romanian artist explored femininity in her distinctive way, “full of joy, color and life”, as Albert Kriemler put it after he visited her in her studio in Bucharest. His charming and feminine Lips St. Gallen embroidery pays homage to the artist´s famous playfulness and her irresistible smile. With his Anouk Lip St Gallen embroidery bag, he created a one of a kind item that embodies state-of-the-art St Gallen embroidery.

The Anouk envelope and Anouk Small evening pouch features embroidered satin. Their lipstick red color accentuates the most flamboyant looks, from the sleek black silk gown with shirt collar to the smart casual combination of a T-Shirt with a Lip embellishment and a red A-Line Lip St. Gallen embroidery skirt.
