Adam Kimmel x George Condo

Adam Kimmel and American artist George Condo have paired up for a new line of T-shirts. If the Condo name sounds familiar, it’s because Kanye West also tapped the artist to create the artwork for his ‘ it’s the new Kanye’ and hit single, Power. The collection comes courtesy of Kimmel’s Fall 2010 collection, titled Casino, featuring a line-up of Monte Carlo standards including velvet smoking jackets and robes. Kimmel’s never one to shy away from a little humor, so he decided to accent his designs with George Condo’s devilish masks, as well as monogrammed crests to compliment the high-roller allure of his pieces.

Etc…

Now the two have decided to produce a limited-edition line of tees printed with Condo’s “Uncle Harry” wearing Kimmel’s double-breasted smoking jacket. Uncle Harry is a recurring figure in Condo’s work, which has been exhibited up and down the museum mile at the Whitney, MOMA, and Guggenheim. We can’t say we’re not a little disturbed by the dapper Muppet-like figure, but a sense a humor is a rare feat of fashion and we commend the mash-up. Available at Comme des Garcons’s Dover Street Market, 10 Corso Como, and Isetan.
