If we could teleport ourselves anywhere on this Earth today, we'd probably be sitting front row at Adam Kimmel's fall 2010 presentation in Paris right now. Kimmel makes his clothes an event as much a collection, often collaborating with other American visionaries, inviting interesting and attractive friends to model (Rita Ackermann, David Blaine, Doug Aitken etc), or even blowing up the whole thing into a gorgeous piece of filmic cowboy art. This season Kimmel worked with painter George Condo, taking inspiration from Condo's 007 lifestyle (he summers in Monte Carlo and gambles at the Ritz) as well as his artwork, so it helps to imagine the artist sitting at the roulette table in a deep velvet blazer and plush slip-ons, puffing on a freshly rolled Cohiba. The resulting masks for his fall 2010 Casino Collection are a hilarious foil to all the impeccable menswear. Peep the full roll call of players after the jump, including Superdude and Albert Bino, and marvel at the erm, pointed placement of their anatomy.
