Founded in 1922, the Switzerland-based fashion house, Akris, has been owned and operated by its founding family for three generations and in summer 2016, the brand opened its first Houston location inside the River Oaks District.
The Swiss designer label is renowned for its exquisitely light-weight Double-Face—a two-sided fabric sewn together with invisible seams blending cashmere, cotton, silk and linen. Other brand standouts include the company’s innovative embroidery and digital photo printing techniques, which make Akris’ bold patterns and designs truly one of a kind. Peruse the fashion-forward collection and find a mix of outerwear, suits, dresses and gowns, as well as handbags, wallets and belts.
Stop in Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
