Akris continues to grow its U.S. retail presence.
The St. Gallen, Switzerland-based brand opened an 878-square-foot unit at 150 Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Fla., last week. This brings the number of freestanding Akris stores in the U.S. to five. The other four are on Madison Avenue in New York; Collins Avenue in Bal Harbour, Fla.; Newbury Street in Boston, and Highland Park Village in Dallas.
The Palm Beach location features some details that are unique, along with more familiar Akris design elements and furniture, such as matte marble floors, a dark brown leather armchair and a trapezoid table designed by Hilmer & Sattler und Albrecht. The store opened shortly after the company named Peter Herink chief executive officer of North America.
