Akris at Bergdorf Goodman

Founded in 1922, family-owned Swiss fashion house Akris got its start making polka dot aprons designed by Alice Kriemler-Schoch, and it was for her that the company was named. A little over 20 years later, the brand had grown significantly, beginning to offer ready-to-wear designs under the watch of Max Kriemler. In the late 1980s, his son Albert Kriemler entered the family business at the young age of 19, turning Akris into the brand we know today. Akris clothing is immediately recognizable by its refined look, featuring architectural elements and precise tailoring that lend themselves to the sleek and sophisticated aura of the brand. Made in high quality materials, their designer women’s clothing is the definition of understated beauty, including plenty of midi dresses in elegant cuts, sculptural tunics, and pants that look effortlessly put together no matter how they’re styled. Akris women’s clothing isn’t all wool and neutrals, however, and the brand’s playful side pops up here and there throughout the line. It’s said that, as a nod to the founder, each Akris garment today features polka dots hidden in the lining, but there are plenty of more outward expressions of playfulness as well. Kriemler incorporates art into his designs in inventive ways, from splashes of color and abstract prints to metallics in unexpected fabrics.
