Today WWD announced the upcoming collaboration between menswear designer Adam Kimmel and workwear brand Carhartt. Only recently we have seen the brand work with another fashion brand, A.P.C.. The French brand had worked with the more fashion forward European division of the brand, while this actually marks the first ever fashion collaboration by Carhartt US.
“Workwear maker Carhartt has partnered with designer Adam Kimmel to launch a co-branded line that will make its debut at retail in May. The line will be sold at Barneys New York and a small number of specialty retailers in the U.S., in addition to stores internationally.
The launch collection encompasses 29 pieces, including outerwear, jeans, plaid flannel shirts and pants in moleskin or cotton twill. Accessories in the line include a duffel and tote bag as well as cotton cashmere beanies. Retail prices will range from $70 to $600.
Highlights of the first Adam Kimmel Carhartt collection include a quilted blazer in moleskin, a canvas artist’s coat and a denim shirt that’s lined in brushed cotton. Key color themes are deep blue, black, indigo and gray. Kimmel changed the color scheme of the exterior Carhartt logo from the usual gold and deep crimson to a navy blue and red.”
We will keep you posted on the line.
