Franz Kline’s Painting No. 7 was the inpiration for the Albert Kriemler’s Akris collection this season. The reference was the black slashes on the painter’s famous canvas with the geometric grid print of the opening pantsuit to the finally dress a bottle green chiffon velvet “vertical.”
The show was a great way to start a Sunday of fashion. The music was up beat and the runway collection made me think this is what fashion week is all about.
Trend: Sophisticated Chic Graphic prints, color-blocking and patchworking of different fabrics and textures inline with the brand. Each show they give you show notes with a swatch of fabrics used in collection.
Key pieces: jacket pieced together from parallelograms of leather, cashmere, and ponyhair; a color-blocked cape; and a patchworked side-zip jacket teamed with fitted, tapering pants. Dresses that were belted in front and hung loose from the shoulders in back.
Key colors: Black, rust,purple,bottle green and camel.
