Founded in the Swiss town of St Gallen in 1922, Akris is a family-run fashion house that has achieved success on a global scale. Now managed by Albert Kriemler, grandson of founder Alice Kriemler-Schoch, the brand is a firm favourite of the fashion elite and counts HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco among its fans. Although Akris produces a bi-annual ready-to-wear collection, its range of exquisite leather handbags are what keep its customers coming back again and again. The distinctive AI tote and the pictured Anouk bag have become signature pieces of the brand. The latter is the perfect cross-body bag and is available in a rainbow of colours. Small and functional, the Anouk is ideal for everyday use, and the geometric prisms of the design give it an intrinsically Akris look.
