St.Gallen Map Print
St.Gallen has been the creative epicenter and heart of Akris since its foundation in 1922. To celebrate the heritage of the house and the city itself, the Fall/Winter 2021 Map Prints were created from maps of St.Gallen dating back from 1878 to 2016.
The Trapezoid Maze Embroidery, inspired by a vintage 1966 pattern, is a playful homage to Akris’ creative cluster in St.Gallen. This town is still The Embroidery City, and Albert Kriemler collaborates very closely with St.Gallen’s specialty fabrics houses to develop the innovative treatments and techniques needed to create the right feel and effect for every Akris embroidery item.
A real piece of heritage. Before there were computers, embroidery machines received their commands from hard paper punch cards. The Punch Card laser cutout and print depict the command to embroider the Akris letters, A-K-R-I-S-. The punch card was produced on the last existing machine in St.Gallen, by the only man who still knows how to punch it.
In 1881/82 in St.Gallen, Charles Wetter-Rüesch developed burn-out guipure embroidery, making possible the mechanical imitation of lace. The Infinite Embroidery of the Akris Fall/Winter 2021 collection uses this technique to create unique accessories and ready-to-wear items that are a subtle wink to the Akris letters. Explore the selection here.
The geometric motif combining terra-cotta, green and black is inspired by the colorful, tiled rooftop of St.Laurenzen, a church from the Mid-19th century by architect Johann Georg Müller. Available as St.Gallen Embroidery, leather patchwork, intarsia knit, and printed scarf. There is also a more muted version that replaces orange with navy.
The color and its name, Gallus Green, are inspired by the Irish monk Gallus, who founded St.Gallen 1400 years ago. This town has been the creative epicenter and home of Akris since its foundation in 1922. Here, Akris cultivates its regional roots and has built a culture of creating fashion that looks beyond fleeting trends.

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
Easy separates in shades of white make summer dressing a breeze.

Relaxed Dressing At Its Finest
“Imi Knoebel has built his own artistic DNA. A Knoebel line, color or form are instantly recognizable as its own.
My collections have always been about the idea of building an Akris quintessence: natural fabrics, craftsmanship, versatility, refined wardrobe essentials.
An Akris double-face cashmere jacket will never be mistaken for anyone else's and this season we added a new icon: the relaxed Linesdress infused by Knoebel's lines works." Albert Kriemler

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.”
No Akris show is complete without a suit. Suits are Albert’s chef d’oeuvre. The jacket is essential. Supreme tailoring knowledge, expert hands, three generations of experience on how a shoulder should be cut, ironed, molded. Paired with sleek Akris pants in extra light wool double-face for powerful, and above all, ultra-modern women.
Craftsmanship At Its Finest
