State of Flux
Albert Kriemler, Creative Director always searchs for effortlessness and ease in his designs, a Selbstverständlichkeit, a feeling of just rightness in the appearance. That is Albert's passion. And a key concept Albert found in the work of German artist Imi Knoebel, this season's Artist Collaboration.
Strokes on Paper

The Ocello Coat
The Akris Resort 2021 collection is a about an intuitive energy and experimental mind, expressing a passion to build your own personal wardrobe. Mix the Ocello cashmere coat back to artsy separates or match to a cashmere sheath dress.
These aline silhouettes will keep you in the swing of things. The Pure Orange parka is silk padded taffeta to beat the chill. The Pure Green jacket is silk shantung to keep you covered but cool. Both finished with a sporty trapezoid buckle.
Happy Hued Handbags
Green, the color of life, energy and nature. Grab it here in the little messenger Ai or small shoulder Ai. The spirit is also captured in the Strokes on Paper print accessories.
Traditional lougewear gets an elevated twist in a matching cashmere knit set. Keep it boldy monochromatic with the Mary jacket and coordinating handbag.
Brighten up the winter months by adding pops of color. Cashmere silk scarves offer a quick fix. Investment pieces like the Bellevue two-in-one coat offer sandy subtleness on the outer coat, pure green cashmere on this inside.

An exercise of color and form. Precise geometry juxtaposed with the carefree nonchalance of scribbled dashes and embroidered stars. Neutral shades lifted up by the pure joy of red, orange and green hues, flowing like vivid brushstrokes on paper.
The Oasis Parka
From crisp mornings to chilly evenings, the Oasis silk taffeta parka will carry you throughout the day. The waist-defining drawstring is extra flattering. Also available in Navy and Pure Green.
“Layering pieces up, adding the right color, distilling the whole look into a single appearance. An Akris woman never lacks to do that anyway.” Albert Kriemler
Hardboard, Cardboard and Beige are Resort's new neutrals to add to your wardrobe. Spring for a delicously soft suede blouson jacket which takes you to any occasion. Take charge and throw it over a matching suede or knit dress. Stay off-duty back to denim.

The Collector's Print
Albert Kriemler pioneered the technology of digital photo print on sophisticated fabrics from his early days at Akris. And while the prints are his inspiration of a season, they became collector items, coveted by the women who wear them for years. Introducing this season's Window Print. Which piece will you collect?
The Nonchalant Pajama
A matching shirt and pant. Effortless, feminine. As an expression of style this flattering pajama implies a nonchalance, while still looking pulled together. Here in this striking, revived 70’s print created by Albert’s father, Max Kriemler.

Wear the two together and you have a modern approach to the day dress. Split them up and these pieces can be combined, added and replaced seamlessly from season to season.
The Iconic Ai Bag
40 Years of Shaping Modernism at Akris. With his Pre-Fall 2020 collection, Albert Kriemler is celebrating 40 years at the helm of Akris design where he is writing his story of modernism. For the occasion, he created a collection of signature items defining the Akris vernacular. Akris believes in simple allure. And with the Ai bag, a traditional tote with sides foldable in and outwards to a trapezoid, it proved the point. Unveiled in autumn 2009, introducing horsehair as an unexpected accessories material, the Ai bags trapezoidal shape spells “A” as in Akris, Albert and Architecture in a very inconspicuous way.
“I have not the slightest interest to show past memories. It’s important to bring inspiration forward. It’s a gift when you can develop something in life. I’m open to the new.”

The Art and Craft of Cashmere Double-Face
It only takes an encounter with a particular garment to appreciate Albert’s ability to empower. Especially Akris' cashmere double-face. A single layer of fabric with no internal structure to give a perfect shape and feel. A cardigan coat and leather pants, an everything ensemble that provides protection, resilience, comfort and style. Irresistible.
