The Art of a Handbag: Akris Bags

Akris Horse Hair and Leather Bag, Price Upon Request. Akris, NYC.

I remember meeting Albert Kriemler, a couple of years ago in New York, he was a gentile man who loves to design beautiful clothing and cares about the craft of making fine clothing. He brought modern sensibility from his native Switzerland into fashion, and made it his own with minimal, yet elegant design. So when he launched his accessories line for spring 2010, I knew to expect, gorgeous, well made bags. The bags have been crafted in box calf or soft cervo leather along with woven horsehair and are available in colors such as Ecru, cayenne, garnet, slate, mocha, greige, smoke, and black. These bags are sure to surpass the usual "it" bag and the changes of time; wouldn't be surprised if they become classics. Akris accessories are available at the Akris flagship store, 835 Madison Avenue, New York or at Bergdorf Goodman, NYC. -David Pedroza
