Akris Short Evening Jacket & Double-Face Pencil Skirt

For the Architectural Collection, Akris designer Albert Kriemler relied on the house's core of strong archetypes and basic components (and luxurious double-face wool). This menswear-inflected look presents an iconic Akris silhouette in black, a more dramatic choice than the collection's signature earth tones.
