AKRIS FALL 2020 RTW COLLECTION
For Fall, Albert Kriemler's starting point was the 1924 silent film L’Inhumaine, particularly the Cubist sets designed by the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens.

For the Akris Fall 2020 RTW runway show, the Creative Director Albert Kriemler took guests to a gallery space in the museum of modern art, lined with huge artworks by Robert Delaunay, Georges Braque and Pierre Chareau.
The collection featured sumptuous cashmere pullovers, either paired with a cashmere patch-pocket cape or a wool double-face, single-breasted coat, swaddled and caressed the wearer.
“First of all, they have to be comfortable,” Kriemler explained. “It’s a very basic phrase, I know. But I think when a woman is at ease in her clothes, she can really be her own person. I think a woman of purpose doesn’t want to have complicated clothes.”
Striking looks included a long taffeta parka with a trapezoid closure, a taupe, millefleurs-lace, hand-pleated shirt gown, a Cubist-inspired stand-collar tunic, a plum double-face wool cutout dress with slits, and a stretchy, black silk crepe strapless gown with a techno grid-structured cube skirt.
