Spring Trend | Black & White
“There is the strict and the geometrical. And then there is the free. I am intrigued by Imi Knoebel's performed experiments of balance and chaos. We tested with it in the Cut-up embellished knitted stripes and St.Gallen embroidery, juxtaposing soft contours with sharp edges. A multilayered statement of a soft power chic that defines Akris in this collection.” -Albert Kriemler
