Assouline is pleased to present Akris, a brand that
truly exemplifies refined, luxurious minimalism, by Valerie
work for Akris, designer Albert Kriemler has created fashion
that is characterized by a tactile sensuality of materials
that enhances a woman's awareness of her physical being
while also providing visual allure in the form of a sleek,
dynamic style. The streamlined look of Akris fashion is
designed to enhance the body, and also to provide
psychological strength and energy through a feeling of
effortless "just-rightness." It is fashion for the
individual, modern woman.
for its sleek, minimalist approach to luxury—through the use
of ultra-thin, natural-fiber fabrics, traditional couture
methods, innovative high technology, and modern graphic
patterns—Akris has been in business for nearly a century.
Based in St. Gallen, a Swiss monastery town known as
Embroidery City, the label maintains a balance of European
refinement and international flair. Often referencing
artists and architects like Yves Klein and Egon Schiele in
his work, designer Albert Kriemler has attracted a loyal
clientele including personalities as diverse as Condoleezza
Rice, Angelina Jolie, and Princess Charlene, Monaco.
Founded by Albert Kriemler's grandmother in 1922 with
polka-dot aprons made on her home sewing machine, and taken
over in 1944 by Kriemler's father, who introduced
ready-to-wear and designed for Givenchy, the house of Akris
has stayed true to its generation-spanning traditions of
focused craftsmanship and transcendent separates. From
showstopping runway imagery to behind-the-scenes studio
shots, artist sketches, and the paintings that informed some
of Akris's most notable collections, this cloth-bound
hardcover encapsulates the brand's singular aesthetic.
