Swiss Style and Austrian Eyewear
14th March 2014 Akris designs are timeless treasures. I discovered these beautiful clothes years ago in London, and have been a fan ever since. The Swiss fashion house, located in picturesque St. Gallen, is acclaimed for its sleek, streamlined glamour that is dedicated to women who value and appreciate pure elegance and loving craftsmanship – clients include Princess Charlene of Monaco.
To celebrate the Akris participation in Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014, and the 50th anniversary of Austrian eyewear company Silhouette, both brands were featured on the catwalk together. Albert Kriemler’s luxurious, yet low-key creations in superb fabrics, complemented the lightweight, modern Silhouette eyewear. “My fashion is about lightness and naturalness that links body consciousness and effortless functionality,” says Akris Creative Director Kriemler.
Both Silhouette and Akris adhere to a design philosophy that is strongly expressive, and chicly minimal. The Silnouette special edition aviators were handcrafted in Austria. www.akris.ch www.silhouette.com JG
