Video: To Almost Die For Suits by Adam Kimmel

September 09, 2008


It's Fashion Week here in New York and people are already fully tattered by its demands on time and attention. We saw a girl on the corner this morning eating pages of the Marc Jacobs feature in the New Yorker. That won't help you understand him, girlfriend! The FADER style team will soon be posting their coverage of all of our favorite shows, but Adam Kimmel, whose art star inspired menswear we would like mailed to us in sizes we can specify over email, has sidestepped the hoopla and gotten us excited to wear powder blue suits for the first time since Easter 1988. Kimmel, with the filmmaking assistance of Ari Marcopoulos and pals, dressed up skateboarding nutjobs Noah Sakamoto and Patrick Rizzo in spring casual and sent them, at fucking terrifying speed, down a hill in Claremont, California. Our challenge to you: watch this and try not to move your head in attempt to steer away from cars and certain death.
