Akris Spring 2011

The Akris Spring 2011 presentation delivered the clean crisp staples we expect from the Swiss fashion house this morning during Paris Fashion Week.

Albert Kriemler made a shirt the most important piece of this collection.

This shirt was paired with shorts, skinny pants or skirts.

We also saw leather gilets, shirt dresses, wide-leg pants, chic jackets, A-line dresses and billowing skirts with asymmetrical hemlines were presented on a mostly neutral colour palette, but we were also treated to a beautiful selection of floral print silks, sand, khaki, electric blue and denim.

The relaxed looks were so simplistic and elegant. This collection for the woman who wants to look chic and sophisticated without revealing too much of herself.

I was slightly confused by the Walter Steiger wedges.

They had a footbed which pointed downwards which I can imagine would be quite difficult to walk in, but the models did so with ease.

The other key accessory were the bags.

We saw the relaxed cervo called the ‘Ai’ bag which was carried like a clutch, and the ‘Anouk’ was a clutch which also had a long shoulder strap wrapped around the models wrist.

Front Row: Anna Wintour

Favourites:
Floral halter dress and azzuro blue silk jacket paired with white asymmetrical top and and wide legged pants

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Angelina Jolie, Susan Sarandon, Sandra Bullock, Sharon Stone, Julianne Moore and Helen Mirren

    While vacation was nice, I seriously missed this blog! I love Akris and this collection seems more colorful than usual, but I’m not crazy about the shoes. I’d like to see Carine Roitfeld in Akris.

      It looks like a child design them! Seriously, it looks like something you would see a funny character of a saturday morning cartoon wearing.

    I love simple collections, because they seem quite overlooked. I would die if someone from yougn hollywood wore one of these looks. It is probably not goign to happen, but still. Tilda Swinton popped immediately to mind when I saw teh navy blue outfit.
