Akris presents the spring summer 2018 collection at Paris Fashion Week. Designer Albert Kriemler works with Alexander Girard, an American Architect and interior, furniture, and textile designer this season after being inspired by his exhibition at Vitra Design Museum. He incorporates Alexander Girard’s art into lively prints. The collection’s highlights are its elegantly feminine sportswear in top-notch Akris fabrics. Some looks have a clean sharpness to them, but all had a bright, playful color palette.
“I saw the exhibition “Alexander Girard – A Designer’s Universe” in the Vitra Design Museum in 2016. Inspiration is something that just happens, you cannot schedule it. During this visit it happened to me and I spoke to my friend Rolf Fehlbaum, the Vitra Chairman Emeritus. The selection of an object is intuitive; I let my feelings make the choice. In this very moment, a work can inspire a dress, a bag, a fabric. This is how objects become messengers between creators who never met.” – Albert Kriemler
