Using the letters in her name as the brands label, Alice Kriemler-Schoch established Akris in Switzerland in 1922. Today, the company is the largest Swiss clothing maker and is led by the third generation of the Kriemler family, Albert Kriemler.
As the brands Creative Director, Albert Kriemler has gained a strong following throughout the years by creating a fashionable collection for powerful, career-oriented women that is known for its couture quality material and commitment to craftsmanship.
The hallmark of Akris designs are style, sophistication, and versatility and each Akris design is still made in Switzerland. Bergdorf Goodman offers a great collection of Akris dresses, jackets, sweaters, and separates.
