For Women Of Purpose

Swiss fashion house Akris — the ultimate purveyor of understated luxury — arrives at CityCenterDC.


The pinnacle of luxury is one that is rarely loud or overpowering; it’s sophisticated and refined in a quieter, unapologetically practical sense. Style insiders know this essence is best exemplified by Akris, an international fashion house that’s just opened its newest boutique at CityCenterDC. Based in St. Gallen, a city in northeastern Switzerland that’s revered for its high-end craftsmanship, the brand’s creative director Albert Kriemler puts meticulously sourced fabrics at the forefront of his “discreetly luxurious” designs.

Here, we dive into the continuing allure of Akris, the generational talent that is Albert Kriemler, and the new CityCenter boutique that stuns with its considered simplicity.
