In a surprising announcement, Adam Kimmel breaks the news of his year-long furlough. The New York fashion designer will be taking a year off to essentially rediscover himself, but he assures fans that he will be honoring certain pre-commitments – including the label’s Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection, his fall/winter designs for Carhartt, and the anticipated 2012 collaboration with Supreme. Adam Kimmel‘s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, however, will not be presented in Paris as previously planned. We will be anticipating your return, Adam.

“After ten years and eighteen collections, I have decided to take a year-long sabbatical from fashion. I intend to use this time to enrich my vision, spend time with my family, and explore a number of creative arenas that have interested me while I’m still young.

I am a designer and creator, first and foremost, I look forward to utilizing this next year to experiment and learn, and channel what I find into new concepts, designs and projects. I believe this is how designers become better stewards to their work.

I want to say thank you for their support and to all those who have been taking this journey with me, my team, my friends, partners and Carhartt which has been a particularly meaningful collaboration for me.
