I discovered Akris apparel at Saks Fifth Avenue many years ago and immediately fell in love with the quiet sophistication of the brand. You can imagine my excitement when I found out they were launching a new accessories collection for Spring 2010, and it did not disappoint. All of the bags are stunning and the ad campaign starring Daphne Guinness is genius! My favorite design is the trapezoid-shaped Ai bag, which is actually an "A" for Akris. The rich horsehair fabric in a variety of beautiful colors and leather trim detailing is so modern and effortlessly chic. Lastly, and perhaps most notably, the minimalistic design has not been interrupted with a single logo! The gray version pictured above, which is the most appropriate size in my opinion, is a whopping $4800 at Akris boutiques. Call 212-717-1170 for additional purchasing information. I'm seriously considering picking up the messenger version of this bag in black and I have a feeling that we're going to see the clutch variation on quite a few "must-have" lists.
