Fashion Brand Giant Akris Turns 90

Worn by women like Angelina Jolie and Princess Charlene of Monaco, the fashion powerhouse Akris is celebrating 90 years in business!  Whew!

To properly celebrate, Switzerland’s couturier Akris is releasing a fabulous commemorative book curated by FIT’s museum director Valerie Steele.

Albert Kriemier quoted at Bergdorf Goodman, “For us, this book is extremely special.  If you think of the last 90 years, it’s much more an expression in five chapters of what Akris is today.” 

We have to say, the book is quite stunning.  Take a look at some images to preview the book and it is available for pre-order now. 

What do you think?
