PFW SS16: Akris

Over at Akris this season Albert Kreimier delivered another smart collection for the Swede brand and also did what all designers in Paris should be doing all along, creating fashion that enlivens in its elegance and quite simply doesn’t beat around the bush.




Instead, SS16 at Akris sent out the usual muted colour palettes but did so systematically, presenting each midnight onyx, frosty white, topaz and finally hot, sandy hue in shapes that struck a balance between easy wear and clothing that elongates, not exaggerates; for that word is too basic for Akris, a woman’s style presence.

Thusly, dresses that appeared like a trousered illusion mingled with slouchy pantsuits and remained punchy all the while because they never quite appeared as, let’s say, obvious as any other collections we’ve seen this season.





The smart fashion finished up with circuit-board like creations of tessellation pattern and perfectly pieced paillette sequins , but as Kreimier does again and again, never once  over did it. The final look too, in its galactic silver vinyl-PVC fusion that departed completely from the suede suggestions at the start of the collection, was also a nice reminder that Akris, above all else, is the overruling connoisseur of fashion forward fabrics in fashion.

This time around, Kreimier’s Akris creations proved more than ever how to pioneer these cutting-edge cuts of cloth and create a fashionable outfit at the same time too.
