“There is nothing more sophisticated than a double-face coat or jacket”, says Albert Kriemler, hinting at the color-blocking Indian Summer inspired pre-fall 19 coat. A cashmere double-face coat takes two days of sewing. Double-face is a defining material of the signature Akris look based on decades of expertise and constant innovation. It ensures an extremely high level of craftsmanship in every single garment, a true investment piece. Being unlined, double-face offers an exceptional wearing experience.

It is flexible and resists creasing. It has no internal structure except for minimal padding inside the shoulders to give the coat a perfect fit, and the fabric a perfect drape. This is why double-face fabric jackets and coats are so quintessentially modern The Indian Summer coat is made of color-block cashmere double face in hues that represent the rich colors of the last days of summer. The inspiration is derived from an abstract painting I love. Wear it with a cotton stretch V-neck shirt with horsehair stitch, a slim cotton techno stretch pants and the Ai medium shoulder bag in scarlet cervocalf leather.
