Akris - Paris Fall 2009
(PARIS) It's perhaps almost unfair to see Albert Kriemler's creations for Akris on the runway without actually touching them. The creative head uses some of the most luxurious fabrics around, like double faced wool, quilted lamb, and cashmere knits. In other words, his loyal and well-dressed clients know what they pay for when they faithfully invest in the brand's exquisite jackets, coats, and flattering pants. "These times motivate you to be more creative," explained the designer. "We all know that we have to please a customer much more today. Clothes shouldn't be constrained. Anything that's complicated in these times simply looks dated." Taking that mantra to heart, Kriemler took a photograph of a trapezoid a few months ago that inspired his appreciated Fall effort full of intelligent coats, intriguing pullovers, and lasting dresses.
