Bridging the centuries: Tweed is an epitome of textile tradition and for this season, Albert Kriemler reimagined it with a bold new approach to lightness. Dazzle in the tweed print on the most refined and light natural fabrics.
Tweed is both a favorite this season and an example of woven tradition with a legacy dating back centuries in the Scottish highlands where resilient fabrics were a necessity to weather the storms. The term tweed is derived from "twill", describing the way the fabric was woven.
In his Akris Resort 2020 collection, Albert Kriemler reimagined tweed as a print made from an embroidered, not woven multicolor tweed fabric.
The never-too-warm printed version adds lightness and surprise. A digital photo of the embroidered tweed is printed on double-face, wool voile and taffeta for great sporty day outfits. They can be combined for every occasion from a visit to a museum, to a lunch or a business day trip. Wear the tweed print silk crepe shirt with cool wide-leg pants and the beige taffeta trench coat. To complete the look, the Ai medium shoulder bag features the woven tweed the print is derived from and shines as a highly desirable everyday bag.
Skorts, a blend of short pants and skirts are a nod to the 70s ladylike look which is so now. Wear it with the sporty top and our cool parka for a mix of decades. Note the signature Akris trapezoid buckle.
Choose loose in a more relaxed elongated Tweed print silk crêpe tunic worn with a cosy silk-cashmere scarf in the same print. Complement with the coveted Anouk small belt bag in woven tweed, to carry all the little things that you might need every second, like the mobile, the key, the lipstick and the passport.
