The Cashmere Feel-Goods
No material is as soft, fine, and warm as cashmere. It is characterized by its delicate, soft nature. It provides natural lightweight insulation without bulk. Cashmere fibers are highly adaptable and easy to spin into yarns and light to heavyweight fabrics. Nothing feels better against the skin than an outstandingly soft Akris cashmere sweater.
Jackets, suits, and coats made of double-faced cashmere or wool are an important element of the signature Akris look. Since the 1980s, Creative Director Albert Kriemler has constantly developed new double-faced fabrics with carefully selected partners. The result is a lightweight fabric with a perfect drape. This is why double-faced wool jackets and coats have since formed a part of every Akris collection.
This luxurious material is beloved for the comfort it provides. Light and easy to wear, it keeps you fresh in the Summer yet warm in the Winter. Feminine and elegant, silk is also a great material to combine with others. Cotton-silk, silk-knit, and silk-cashmere are some of the blends that Akris offers within our silk dresses, tops, pants and more.
Cotton is soft, natural and breathable. Thanks to its smooth fibers, especially when it undergoes a gentle finishing process, it is perfect for everyday wear. Because of its natural filaments, it is hypoallergenic, absorbent, and breathable, offering perfect moisture-control and never irritating to the skin.
