For Fall/Winter 2010 Adam Kimmel continued to find inspiration in American hero’s. In the past we’ve seen Malanga and Krantz work alongside the NY based designer, this season see’s George Condo collaborate with Kimmel. Kimmel’s clothing is American in every way, inspired by American culture and taking direct influence from the lifestyles of its innovators. The collection entitled ‘Casino’ takes inspiration not from Condo’s iconic paintings as much as from the characters and their suggested lifestyles, to bring it back to the artist, Condo’s characters are used as templates for the models head masks, which were masterly crafted by Gabe Bartalos, a Hollywood prosthetic artist best known for his work with Matthew Barney.
