Akris S/S 2010 : Daphne Guinness by Steven Klein

Bag Lady

Lauren Milligan
08 December 2009


SWISS fashion label Akris today unveiled its first handbag collection and has chosen über muse Daphne Guinness - looking very unlike her usual blonde self - as the face of the range.
As well as the bag debut the images are another landmark for the label, as the 15th collection which has been shot by photographer Stephen Klein. Working with Akris designer Albert Kriemler, grandson of the company's founder, Klein shot his first Akris campaign with British model Stella Tennant in 1990 - and has shot every one since.
"For one, Daphne is a beautiful and intriguing woman - a fashion icon in her own right," Kriemler explained. "I have seen her photographed by Steven before, she emanates a sense of mystery and aristocracy - there is more to the picture than meets the eye."
The new Akris bags - the trapezoidal-shaped Ai bag and the Amata clutch - pictured with Guinness who is sporting the new spring/summer 2010 colletion, will arrive in stores in February.

The set is very similar but no, it isn't from her VI ed. I think they shot it in the same day (and maybe time).

It looks indeed like an outtake. Kinda dissapointing. She also looks like Sharon Stone in that pic.

It's very muted, I don't really like it. And Daphne looks nothing like herself, you can hardly tell it's her (in fact, if it didn't say so I don't know if I could tell it's her).

Why even bother using her when she doesn't dress like that or even do her hair like that (I'm assuming she'll go back to her pre-a-few-days-ago look)? Unless, that is, that she wants to become more of a model than a muse. In that case:

Hm, not sure. It's so photoshopped that almost look cartoon-ish.
