Akris Spring Summer and Resort 2011

It took a Akris Resort 2011 Trunk Show at Holt Renfrew for me to have an appreciation for the brand. I always overlook them, but the prints from the Resort collection were pretty cool.

You can’t really tell but the above resort 2011 print is a photo of people sitting in what looks like an outdoor cafe. It’s bizarre and a bit creepy but I love it.  The detail of the people isn’t something you notice until you stare for awhile

I liked the seaside village print too. It’s like you are wearing a beautiful postcard.

Akris Spring Summer 2011 was all about the flower print and colour blocking.

The maxi length trend is one that I enjoy because I’m just tall enough to pull it off. Platforms help a lot too.

The resort collection was more impressive to me but I’m curious what direction Akris will take for fall winter 2011.
