2002 Best Women's Clothing, Sophisticated

If we had a sequin for every clothing company that claims to marry modern style with timelessness, we’d have ourselves a full-on Oscars dress. Enter Akris, which actually fulfills the promise. Season after season, this neat-as-a-pin Swiss boutique rolls out elegant suits and superbly cut evening dresses that balance impeccability with creativity, are coveted by style-conscious maidens and matrons alike, and walk the line between minimalist and edgy with knowing swagger.
