about the creator
Since its beginnings in 1922, it was Akris's ambition to perpetuate the canton's long standing textile tradition. The independent family couture house in Saint Gall owes its international recognition to the founder's grand-sons Peter and Albert Kriemler, who are now in charge of the company. Albert Kriemler's creations unite luxury and comfort with refined cuts, bold colours, graphic prints and high-quality fabrics. Inspired by art and architecture, the label's art director designs timeless pieces that enhance modern-day women. Very popular in the United States of America, Akris's fashion counts Alicia Keys, Michelle Obama and Angelina Jolie among its fans. Princess Charlene of Monaco is also a faithful customer. In 1996, Akris launched its sister brand Akris Punto adding a younger touch to its looks.
