Leather Weather

Fall is the perfect time for a leather jacket. Get comfortable with the Akris Erzah jacket in lamb nappa leather with signature trapezoid quilting and luxurious silk lining. Or choose the timeless Akris Architectural Hasso jacket for an even sharper look. Both easily style with this season's asymmetrical techno neoprene dress with Punch Card laser cut inset.

St.Gallen Map Print

St.Gallen has been the creative epicenter and heart of Akris since its foundation in 1922. To celebrate the heritage of the house and the city itself, the Fall/Winter 2021 Map Prints were created from maps of St.Gallen dating back from 1878 to 2016.

Trapezoid Embroidery

The Trapezoid Maze Embroidery, inspired by a vintage 1966 pattern, is a playful homage to Akris’ creative cluster in St.Gallen. This town is still The Embroidery City, and Albert Kriemler collaborates very closely with St.Gallen’s specialty fabrics houses to develop the innovative treatments and techniques needed to create the right feel and effect for every Akris embroidery item.

Punch Card

A real piece of heritage. Before there were computers, embroidery machines received their commands from hard paper punch cards. The Punch Card laser cutout and print depict the command to embroider the Akris letters, A-K-R-I-S-. The punch card was produced on the last existing machine in St.Gallen, by the only man who still knows how to punch it.

Infinite Embroidery

In 1881/82 in St.Gallen, Charles Wetter-Rüesch developed burn-out guipure embroidery, making possible the mechanical imitation of lace. The Infinite Embroidery of the Akris Fall/Winter 2021 collection uses this technique to create unique accessories and ready-to-wear items that are a subtle wink to the Akris letters. Explore the selection here.

Tiled Roof

The geometric motif combining terra-cotta, green and black is inspired by the colorful, tiled rooftop of St.Laurenzen, a church from the Mid-19th century by architect Johann Georg Müller. Available as St.Gallen Embroidery, leather patchwork, intarsia knit, and printed scarf. There is also a more muted version that replaces orange with navy.

Gallus Green

The color and its name, Gallus Green, are inspired by the Irish monk Gallus, who founded St.Gallen 1400 years ago. This town has been the creative epicenter and home of Akris since its foundation in 1922. Here, Akris cultivates its regional roots and has built a culture of creating fashion that looks beyond fleeting trends.

The Streets of St.Gallen

Akris handbags, like the Akris Ai, Alexa, and Anouk, are made for everyday wear. Explore the bags of Fall/Winter 2021, shot in the streets of St.Gallen where they are meant to be worn, and where the inspiration for this collection grew.

Spring Trend | Black & White

“There is the strict and the geometrical. And then there is the free. I am intrigued by Imi Knoebel's performed experiments of balance and chaos. We tested with it in the Cut-up embellished knitted stripes and St.Gallen embroidery, juxtaposing soft contours with sharp edges. A multilayered statement of a soft power chic that defines Akris in this collection.” -Albert Kriemler

Relaxed Dressing At Its Finest

“Imi Knoebel has built his own artistic DNA. A Knoebel line, color or form are instantly recognizable as its own.

My collections have always been about the idea of building an Akris quintessence: natural fabrics, craftsmanship, versatility, refined wardrobe essentials.

An Akris double-face cashmere jacket will never be mistaken for anyone else's and this season we added a new icon: the relaxed Linesdress infused by Knoebel's lines works." Albert Kriemler

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.
