A Dreamy Mood
“There is a freshness, that sense of life that is so vivid in these pictures. And I loved the idea of lightness, of white clouds moving across a clear blue St.Gallen sky.” – 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.
“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.”
Leather can be the answer to unpredictable temperatures as we transition between seasons. Offering just the right warmth for a crisp day but in a clean neutral palette for a summer mood.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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

Imi Knoebel's extraordinary sense for colors always stunned me. He lets color shine. I can very much relate to his world of forms and grand colors. Color is everything to me, this season more than ever before. -Albert Kriemler .
