Akris is a luxury fashion and accessories house for the modern independent woman. Founded in 1922, the family-owned Swiss fashion house is renowned for its exceptional fabrics and materials, meticulous tailoring, and craftsmanship. Creative Director, Albert Kriemler is often inspired by and collaborates with various artists and architects of the modernist era. Albert creates collections of refinement and utmost sophistication; pieces that are quintessentially modern, yet timeless.
In 2009, Akris introduced handbags to the brand, featuring Horsehair textile, a rare woven fabric made from the tail-hair, which continues to be a staple throughout the handbag collections. The Ai bag is the signature handbag shape, a subtle trapezoid relating to the A in Akris.
The Akris Palm Beach boutique on Worth Avenue carries the current seasonal collection and accessories. Along with Palm Beach, Akris boutiques in North America can be found in New York, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Miami.
Akris Palm Beach is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00am to 6:00pm and closed on Sunday.
