These extraordinary pieces were designed by Akris a Swiss label. Here comes the story:

"Dubbed by the Financial Times as “the most successful label you've never heard of,” Akris targets heavy-hitting she-executives with divinely tailored suits and understated separates. The Swiss family-owned label was created by Alice Kriemler Schoch (her initials form A-Kri-S) in 1922, when she started sewing polka-dot aprons. Today, her grandsons run the company, which has become a destination for mature power dressers who don’t do dowdy. Each super-luxe piece is still designed and produced in Switzerland and honors Alice with hidden polka-dots in the lining."

Albert Kriemler is the creative head behind Akris:

I admire Akris' understatement and straightness and  
I am a little bit proud that also we in Switzerland have our designer...
