Kieley Kimmel AW2013

Coming across LA based designer Kieley Kimmel’s Autumn Winter collection Revolt, She Said, was refreshing because it has both masculine and feminine details in a warm, approachable quality that we don’t come across often in high fashion brands.

This collection was inspired by a strong feminist essay by Donna Haraway and named after a book by the philosopher-feminist Julia Kristeva, yet in contrast, the general feel is soft and understated. I can’t help but appreciate that it is this balance of androgyny that heightens the minimalism in the art direction, a revolt that our expectations of feminism isn’t always what we’re used to.
