Dazed Digital have a short interview with Adam Kimmel about his upcoming collaboration with Carhartt. Carhartt, who’ve been quite the collaboration hussy of late, have recently teamed up with the likes of Junya Watanabe before – so the Adam Kimmel collection isn’t that big a jump. One interesting answer was when Kimmel was asked about the similarities between himself and Carhartt. He also answered the question that we wanted to ask, which was where the pricepoint would be.
“Workwear could be found in all of my collections—like the jumpsuit which was inspired in part by the uniform of painters and mechanics. And as I said durability and wearability are also big staples of mine. I’ve always appreciated clothes that you can wear everyday, and I think both my brand and Carhartt supply that. While the AK product is handmade in Italy using very high-end fabric, the Adam Kimmel/Carhartt collection is made in Carhartt workwear facilities. The price point will be somewhere between Carhatt’s and my own.”
