Akris
By Valerie Steele
 
Description
Known for its minimalist approach to luxury—through the use of unique fabrics, traditional couture methods, innovative technology, and modern photo-prints—Swiss label Akris has been in business for nearly a century, attracting a clientele as diverse as Condoleezza Rice, Angelina Jolie, and Princess Charlène of Monaco. This volume encapsulates the brand’s singular aesthetic, with the many artistic references of Albert Kriemler. Also available in German.
