The Met Gala: Breakdown + the Girls

May 6, 2014

Finally, after sifting through all the hype of the Academy and Oscar’s respective red carpets, last night we arrived at the one that everyone at A.K. waits for every year. The Metropolitan Costume Gala, and this year was exceptionally great because the costume wing was named after Conde Nast, past Vogue editor, and fashion tsunami Anna Wintour. The Met Gala is also very different because you really see the fashion crowd show up. It isn’t necessarily about celebrity, or trying to portray an image (like anything in LA is), it is gritty and daring; it’s New York right?! So here they are, the girls who made our list, in “no particular order”..

1)Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa

2)Naomi Watts in Givenchy

3)Suki Waterhouse in Burberry

4)Liu Wen in Zac Posen (A.K.RIKK’S Designer) ; )

5)Charlize Theron in Dior

6)Giselle Bundgen in Balenciaga

7)Arizona Muse in Ralph Russo Couture

8)Dakota Johnson in Jason Wu (another A.K.RIKK’S Designer)

9)Hayden Panettiere in Dennis Basso

Rain, rain…

October 30, 2012

Now that we’re well into fall, yet not quite into winter, you’re going to need your transitional outerwear! I think people forget about this time of year when a light coat doesn’t quite cut it, but you don’t want to whip out your winter jackets. Once we hit November in Michigan, we’re in for a lot of rain too. It’s difficult to find stylish outerwear that can keep you dry and that also doesn’t make you look like you’re ready to climb Mount Everest. From Burberry to Ilse Jacobsen, we’ve got a variety of transitional outerwear, including boots, shoes, and accessories, for men and women.

You might consider yourself a Belstaff enthusiast, maybe even an aficionado, whatever you do, consider yourself in need of a reboot. 

At the hands of Martin Cooper, revitalizer of Burberry (especially its Prorsum line), Belstaff is upping its game to the luxury fashion house tier. Expect crocodile appliqué, python trim, and buttery lamb, all applied carefully to the silhouettes that the line has been known for. 

At first the buying team at A.K.RIKK’S was a little skeptical, but after previewing the line for Holiday 2013, we are all in! Stay tuned for our big re-launch of the brand!

Mario Testino does London!

April 9, 2011

Calling all birds and blokes! Our final Spring/Summer shipment of Burberry just arrived. Really excited about all the color that showed up this season. Christopher Bailey did a great job combining some of the classic elements of the brand with trends like color-blocking, technical fabrics, and prints. I’m really liking the fresh add campaign from Mr. Testino as well, so luxe-y!
