“It's fun, it's whimsical, it's meaningful. The Kinderstern in my collection is a joyous note of optimism.”​
Albert Kriemler​ ​

Each year, Akris will celebrate Women with Purpose with a new accessory, a Symbol of Purpose, and a portion of sales will be donated to a chosen charity. This year will benefit Kinderstern e.V., a nonprofit organization dedicated to projects for children in need.​

​ Celebrate the Women with Purpose in your life with this year's Kinderstern charm. Wear one with pride and share with those you cherish. ​

The Kinderstern, in the Akris Spring/Summer 2021 collection, is inspired by an artwork of German artist Imi Knoebel, created in 1989. It stands for the rights of children and is their artwork in times of need. ​

As a subtle nod to the spirit of humanity, this symbol comes to life through embellishments, multicolored prints, and playful bag charms that bring a sense of joy to your wardrobe. ​

A true social sculpture, the Kinderstern is part of an ongoing series, which is contributed to support children through Kinderstern e.V., a nonprofit organization founded by Carmen Knoebel.​ ​ ​
