Akris designer Albert Kriemler created a collection for the bold woman who is not afraid to show some — or actually a lot — of skin. Most of the sheer black mini- and maxi dresses that came down the runway left little to the imagination, while others covered up only the most necessary parts but exposed the décolletage, arms, and legs. Tuxedo-inspired pieces, like a black sleeveless vest, were powerful and streamlined. A sheer black peplum top offered one of the most feminine elements, while black and green leather pants lent toughness. The color scheme was black and white, with one all-beige and one head-to-toe tan look toward the end. Also of note: all the models wore either black or white ballet flats, even with evening gowns.
