AKRIS FALL 2020 RTW COLLECTION

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.
