Yesterday Bergdorf Goodman and W Magazine hosted a special preview of Albert Kriemler’s Akris Fall/Winter 2010 Collection, and special it certainly was. Centered at the unveiling was a large projection screen that was connecting Kriemler to the event via Skype, presidential conference-style. From his studio in St. Gallen, Switzerland, Kriemler elegantly described specific inspirations for his new line from the Mountain Lake to the pine green forest and declared his pieces were “made like a fine German car.” All the while, Linda Fargo and W’s Alex White helped facilitate the show and interact more directly with the audience. Fargo was excited by this idea of “beaming him up,” although she admitted that this Star Trek reference was not very relevant to her since she had never seen the films or the cult TV shows. “I’m just excited to lose my Skype virginity at work,” she smiled.
