Celebrating the 90th anniversary of Akris, Designer Albert Kriemler took us back to the "tropical" 90's with his 90 counting designs S/S 2013 collection. Talking about the 90's, it's the period when I was still a kid and so I literally felt when a personal invitation for the show was laying in front of my doorstep. For me being invited for a show is such a appreciation for my work in fashion. It never comes out of nowhere. That is why I was thankful like a child to attend the show. The first thing what caught my eye was the fresh, bright and young vision of the designer for this collection. Inspired by the Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx, Albert created beautiful abstract prints and used fluo yet pastel tints on his designs made out of Tweed, suede and jersey fabrics. Among the designs I noticed some see-through tops and deep V-Neck dresses. Quite bold but very chic at the same time. By the look of it it's time to hit the gym for Akris upcoming spring/summer collection but for a Akris dress it's totally worth it. Well done Albert !!
