Together We Create!
With his Fall/Winter 2020 collection Albert Kriemler is paying tribute to the pioneering French architect Robert Mallet-Stevens and his creative comrades united in the UAM, L'Union des artistes modernes. A key movement in European modernism, the UAM was ahead of its time, declaring that innovation is formed through close and inspiring collaboration. “I admire how daringly this group allowed no boundaries between arts and crafts, aiming to create a total work of art. Like their work, Akris would be entirely different without our exceptional tailoring, embroidery, fabric and print collaborators. Not from the lone genius, but from joint thinking, creativity springs.”
