The Inspiration ​

To have a walk staged at my own doorstep, my hometown, St.Gallen, seemed only natural to me, literally the closest thing. ​

It was the first notion that came to my mind while designing this collection, and a leitmotif, that let me play with everything that is at the core of the house. The coat, the jacket. The double-face, the embroidery, the knit. The Trapezoid, and the letters, spelling: A-K-R-I-S-.​

St.Gallen, the Embroidery City, is renowned for its exquisite fabrics. A textile excellence cluster that started with the monks weaving linen in the late Middle Ages. ​

Each look in this collection holds an embroidery item. With it I want to celebrate the spirit of St.Gallen, this unique city, that defines Akris.​

Albert Kriemler​ ​

The Fall/Winter 2021 collection is a subtle homage to regional roots and local savoir-faire. St.Gallen has been the creative epicenter and heart of Akris since its foundation in 1922. The St.Gallen Embroidery and Vintage Map Print in the collection is an emblem of St.Gallen’s rich heritage, a source of infinite inspiration, reinterpreted by Albert Kriemler with modern verve and an at ease appeal. ​​
