The Collector's Print
Albert Kriemler pioneered the technology of digital photo print on sophisticated fabrics from his early days at Akris. And while the prints are his inspiration of a season, they became collector items, coveted by the women who wear them for years. Introducing this season's Window Print. Which piece will you collect?
The Nonchalant Pajama
A matching shirt and pant. Effortless, feminine. As an expression of style this flattering pajama implies a nonchalance, while still looking pulled together. Here in this striking, revived 70’s print created by Albert’s father, Max Kriemler.
The two-piece dress. This clever invention in super-fluid techno cotton combines the smartness of a dress with the versatility of two separates. Wear the two together and you have a modern approach to the day dress. Split them up and these pieces can be combined, added and replaced seamlessly from season to season.
The Iconic Ai Bag
40 Years of Shaping Modernism at Akris. With his Pre-Fall 2020 collection, Albert Kriemler is celebrating 40 years at the helm of Akris design where he is writing his story of modernism. For the occasion, he created a collection of signature items defining the Akris vernacular. Akris believes in simple allure. And with the Ai bag, a traditional tote with sides foldable in and outwards to a trapezoid, it proved the point. Unveiled in autumn 2009, introducing horsehair as an unexpected accessories material, the Ai bags trapezoidal shape spells “A” as in Akris, Albert and Architecture in a very inconspicuous way.
“I have not the slightest interest to show past memories. It’s important to bring inspiration forward. It’s a gift when you can develop something in life. I’m open to the new.”
The Sophisticated Parka
The take-you-anywhere item of the season. Made of crease-resistant silk organza, this Akris parka has the ability keep you comfortable in cool summer nights. Make a head-to-toe statement with the matching checked skirt. Or break it up for a relaxed and sporty look. Also available in solid black or navy in our Kansas parka.
The Art and Craft of Cashmere Double-Face
It only takes an encounter with a particular garment to appreciate Albert’s ability to empower. Especially Akris' cashmere double-face. A single layer of fabric with no internal structure to give a perfect shape and feel. A cardigan coat and leather pants, an everything ensemble that provides protection, resilience, comfort and style. Irresistible.

No Akris show is complete without a suit. Suits are Albert’s chef d’oeuvre. The jacket is essential.

Craftsmanship At Its Finest
