Essay

Restrained and calm, stylistically assured, strongly characterised and backed up by an outstanding quality of craftsmanship – these are the terms that come to mind if we try to describe the work of fashion designer Albert Kriemler. Having been an insider's tip for many years in the international fashion industry, the unique combination of strength and refinement, creativity and wearability associated with Albert Kriemler and his Akris label is at the cutting edge of contemporary fashion today. For a good while the St.Gallen firm has enjoyed an international reputation which it richly deserves. Both as a designer and as a personality, Albert Kriemler demonstrates how well regional roots and cosmopolitan stature go together. In the opinion of the jury of DPS 09, this makes him the perfect ambassador for 'Swissness' in design.
