If Daphne Guinness became the face of a brand, or when Daphne Guinness became the face of a brand, Akris is probably the last name that'd come to mind. But she is, pictured here in their spring campaign. Officially, she's the face of their new handbag collection which launches in February, when the ads hit magazines. The Ai bag's shown here with Daphne, but all of them are made from exclusive horsehair. Steven Klein shot the campaign, his fifteenth for the brand over a twenty year partnership that started in 1990 with Stella Tennant. Desinger Albert Kriemler says of Daphne, "she emanates a sense of mystery and aristocracy." We'd have added, "and couture."
