Adam Kimmel x Carhartt Fall/Winter 2011 Collection

Adam Kimmel’s braids itself together as one with American workwear brand Carhartt. Carhartt’s signature heritage pieces  our somewhat softened by infusing them with high quality fabrics and a more modern look and feel. These pieces are as durable as you’d expect any Carhartt product to be but you won’t necessarily be pegged as a blue collard worker, not that that’s a bad thing. s.

Adam Kimmel Spring/Summer 2012 Runway

Clothes tell stories. They say thing like, “Hi, I’m a junkie whore” or “Hi, I want to look like a just crawled out of bed but I spent 2 hours getting ready.” Adam Kimmels’s Spring/Summer 2012 looks tells me that the wearer might be a surfer boy who was told by his girlfriend that he need to clean up a bit, but holds on to dark colors as to accommodate spills. Kimmel sneaks in a few skirts and has most of his male waifs barefoot. For those who wore shoes, are sporting  slip-on and boot looks from the designer. (gq)

It was wild in them thar hills when Kimmel and his wife, Leelee, went to stay with the Attoes. In the celluloid aide-mémoire that the couple made to go with the show, Attoe rides his motorbike through snowcapped majesty and gets set upon by Bigfoot—the consummate Northwestern experience, in other words—and you can feel the designer falling under the spell of this “backwoods motorcycle punk,” as he calls him.
