Ideally suited for independent women, the House of Akris is a purveyor of luxury fashion and accessories that features collections from Albert Kriemler – their esteemed creative director. Since opening its doors for the first time back in 1922, this Swiss family-owned retail outlet has become renowned around the world for its excellence in craftsmanship in tailoring.
The shop was named after the initials of its founder Alice Kriemler-Schoch who helped create a highly-popular range of ready-to-wear garments whilst collaborating with major Parisian houses like Givenchy and Ted Lapidus. Enter Akris today and you’ll find a modern fashion boutique offering the very best in women’s clothing.
The man leading Akris is the aforementioned Alice’s son, Albert Kriemler who seeks to make the lives of women ‘less complicated’ by creating clothes that enhance their natural grace and beauty. Seeing clothes are far more than mere everyday apparel, Albert regards the clothing he designs as a ‘sensual dialogue’ between women and the women who wear them.
