ABOUT THE BRAND Founded in 1922 in St. Gallen, Switzerland, the name Akris was derived from founder Alice-Kriemler Schoch's initials. The entrepreneurial designer first started designing dotted aprons with intricate embroidery and soft cotton, which quickly grew into a full line of ready-to-wear. Almost 100 years later, the brand is now helmed by her grandsons. Creative Director Albert Kriemler continues to pay homage to his grandmother through polka-dot lined clothing, luxe fabrications and modern design-which now include sleek accessories like the cult-favorite AI trapezoidal handbag.
