Akris - Paris Spring 2010
(PARIS) Especially on a bright Sunday morning, this collection was a palate-cleanser. Albert Kriemler has emerged as one of Paris' most consistent designers, hell-bent on the kind of sportswear and separates that women always seem to need. His clever scissor work, seen for Spring in a series of a trapezoid laser-cut leather appliqué dresses, skirts and jackets, continues to elevate this brand into one of Paris' big guns. Painstakingly-chosen fabrics like double-face wool, jersey and silk georgette, give Kriemler's work an ease all its own. Most revelatory this season? The featherweight gowns, drop-waisted in jersey and georgette and dramatized with draped backs and folded lapels. A covered-up jersey number with an open back on Karlie drove home just how desirable Kriemler can be. No wonder the brand is launching a handbag collection for Spring.
