Catwalk Review: Akris A/W 2011/12

: Albert Kriemler of Akris

The work of modernist Joseph Maria Olbrich, founder of the Vienna Secession art movement.

The Swiss designer played to his strengths with a comprehensive collection of chic, no-nonsense business separates with a rich palette inspired by Olbrich, comprising crimson, garnet, camel, steel and inky blue. Collaress, plain-fronted coats and minimal sheath dresses were embellished with zips, while the final look, a cape-like floor-skimming dress featuring a huge printed city scape, and astrakhan fur trims injected some drama into the proceedings.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: Kriemler produced a collection that was perfect for the modern working woman; clean, simple and very wearable - and if she has a weakness for a zipper, that's even better.
