The Kimmel Man
By Rintaro Ishige
I first interviewed Adam Kimmel last year and I gained a more insightful perspective of the man and the label. Not one to be content, Adam is always growing and evolving and the Adam Kimmel Spring/Summer 2012 Collection reflects this in many ways, perhaps none more so than it being presented in his first runway show in Paris. Adam refers to the collection as "Dark Surfing with a Psychedelic undertone."
