My Big Ambition
Fashion designer Albert Kriemler once said of taking over his family's business--a conservative Swiss clothing company descended from his grandmother's apron-making operation--"My big ambition was to get into New York's Bergdorf Goodman store." Done. Ditto Neiman Marcus, Saks, a flagship location of his own in New York and runway shows from Paris to Milan. Clients for Kriemler's understated but increasingly visible, vintage-inspired work include Susan Sarandon, Brooke Shields, Condoleezza Rice and Princess Caroline of Monaco.
Albert Kriemler has won multiple accolades during his almost forty years at Akris, including the Swiss Design Award for his sleek, minimalist creations - “I think today’s clothes need to be simple because our lives are so complicated,” explains the Creative Director. With an emphasis on impeccable fit, the collections include classic, understated pieces that will work for so many occasions and transcend seasons.
