German artist Thomas Ruff took in the show and provided images for the fabrics.

PHOTO FINISH: German photographer Thomas Ruff unveiled his first dalliance with fashion on Sunday night in Paris, where Akris designer Albert Kriemler employed Ruff images in his fall collection.


“I only know photographs on T-shirts,” he said, “but I think with the skill and expertise of Albert, he created something completely new. It’s all him. I’m only his source.”


Indeed, Kriemler culled images from Ruff dating from 1992, 2008 and 2010. The photographer is gearing up to exhibit new works — mainly photograms and negatives — at Gagosian in Beverly Hills, Calif., with the show set to open April 19.
