Adam Kimmel SS12, Shirt
Adam Kimmel at thecorner
For Spring Summer 2012, ‘Dark Surfing’ was the inspiration behind Adam Kimmel’s first catwalk show.
Eschewing the standard view of LA surf style; the hawaiian shirt, loose-fit bottoms and a sun bleached demeanour, the collection retained a toughness through its boxy shapes, deep indigo shades and utilitarian fabric choices.
The shirt pictured is plain woven, short-sleeved and has a traditional island-scene repeat, distorted to the point of camouflage. However, it’s the attached collar that makes this a much more interesting item.
