NEW YORK — When Albert Kriemler hits Bergdorf Goodman today, the Akris designer will be there for two celebrations: to mark the brand’s 20 years at the specialty store and to fete 15 years of collaborating with photographer Steven Klein on the Akris ad campaigns.
Bergdorf’s is hosting a cocktail party for Kriemler and the collaboration tonight and is exhibiting more than 60 of Klein’s photos for Akris, both on the fourth floor and in several of its Fifth Avenue windows. The photos range from the first campaign in 1995 featuring then-budding model Stella Tennant to the most recent spring visual, which featured Klein’s friend Daphne Guinness, and served to launch the Saint Gallen, Switzerland-based brand’s accessories.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
