WHO: Albert Kriemler for Akris
BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: The collarless, cashmere coats with leather panelling were the ultimate, streamlined chic pieces, a contrast to the cropped, sleeveless parkas with high, pointy collars. There were rectangular, Kline inspired prints on tailored suits while the shimmering, velvet dresses ticked the movement boxed. Thigh-high, fitted boots with curved heels completed every look - impossible to walk in, but the perfect balance of structure and style.
VERDICT: You have to applaud Kriemler. His translation of Kline's abstract work into a subtle, relaxed and wearable collection was spot on. A rich colour palette of burnt orange, bottle green and purple on luxe fabrics only added to the case that art and style go hand in hand for Autumn/Winter.
