Akris is a Swiss-based luxury brand founded by Alice Kriemler-Schoch in 1922. The name of the brand has been derived from the letters of the founder’s name. Kriemler started out the brand by selling simple, dotted aprons sewn by her own sewing machine. Each piece is still designed in Switzerland and the polka dot pattern is still used along with the Akris Punto logo. Clear shapes and simple lines are the fundamentals of the brand. The Akris girl is sexy and she never compromises on quality.
