Mama Wardrobe Wednesday: Kieley Kimmel

I love clothes, it's pretty obvious, but there are moments when I literally want to cry because I love a piece of clothing so much. This is pretty much how I felt when I saw Kieley Kimmel's collection. Beautiful, radiant, elegant and I want every piece!

A little bit about her (taken from her website, couldn't write it better):

Kieley Kimmel is a textile and clothing designer living and working in LA. Guided by color theory and the liminality of unconventional geometries, her clothes explore the emotion of space and place with a distinct attention to texture. Animated knits, weaves, silkscreen, hand-painted and digital prints converge with simple and elegant cuts that imbue the garments with a comforting and wearable yet idiosyncratic air. Garments are manufactured with consideration in Downtown LA.

The Spring/Summer 2014 collection is based on discussions of Walter Benjamin's sprawling non-fiction surrealist epic, The Arcades Project, and Sutro Baths, the massive 19th century public bathhouse along the coast of San Francisco. The collection explores what Sutro Baths was and represented in its heyday: bath themes, concrete surfaces, light and space, water, watermarks, and comfort and the emergence of leisure culture.
