Since the launch of the first Ai handbag, Albert Kriemler has made horsehair an Akris accessories signature. We celebrate the upcoming 10th anniversary of Ai introducing refined horsehair bags and equestrian details.
The first Akris handbag that Albert Kriemler created was made of precious horsehair fabric. Since then, horsehair is an Akris accessories signature. Running up to the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first Ai in 2020, horsehair as well as equestrian details in tailoring, are a major inspiration for the Fall/Winter collection 2019. When Albert Kriemler chose it for the first Ai bag, horsehair was an unexpected fabric in luxury accessories. It is lightweight for travel, animal-friendly, resilient and understated. As horsehair requires masterful artistry to craft, it is the epitome of refinement. In this collection, horsehair is celebrated in many details.
Colorama Ai and Colorama Anouk
If you love the Akris for its neutral colors, think again: The geometrical shape and its refined signature horsehair material are the perfect setting for bold colors and designs. Case in point: the Ai medium messenger bag with this season’s distinctive Goethe-inspired Colorama multicolor horsehair intarsia. As every Ai, it can be worn in two tote versions featuring its trapezoidal shape and, unfolded, as a rectangular shopper.
Moreover, the Anouk cervocalf with inserted horsehair fabric patches is available in striking Colorama intarsia.
Alexa’s charming horsehair tassle
Sometimes it’s all about the details. Our new Alexa is a sleek handbag made of refined cervocalf leather in the signature Akris trapezoidal shape. It perfectly packs all the essentials for a modern woman, seven days per week. And the little horsehair tassle adorning the handle is sure to turn heads. Here seen in the Alexa small version, it is also available in medium, and large size and in seasonal navy, olive green, red and monochrome colors.
Party with the Anouk horsehair clutch
This season’s Akris evening capsule collection comes with its own refined after dark Anouk. The Anouk evening clutch adds a touch of discreet glamour that is so Akris. Shimmering horsehair fabric, a the dark silver chain and the rapezoid pression closure will make you shine during the end of year party season.
