Paris: Refined and still youthful, Albert Kriemler, creative director of Akris presented a covetable collection of luxurious pieces. Russian artist Kazimir Malevich’s abstract geometric works strongly influenced this season manifesting itself in the form of placed squares, rectangles and pentagons sophisticatedly rendered in tonal colour as the only adornment. Cropped a-line skirts and panel tops were updated with long sheer layers and uneven hemlines. Opaque leather, silks and cottons played their part in producing a dynamic juxtaposition against translucent organza adding depth to each look. –Elle Hankinson
