Albert Kriemler’s pre-fall collection for Akris centered around a recent safari trip to Kenya. He referenced the region in several ways, most notably through South African bird imagery, rendering the brilliant blue-and-orange Karminspint species onto crisp white blouses. A few navy blue outerwear pieces featured a starry, photographic print with lions and panthers. Kriemler’s lineup felt cohesive and sophisticated, though subtler takes on the theme — such as a navy evening gown covered in black leather appliqués, its colors drawn from the night scene at his lodge in Masai Masa, made the strongest impact.
