Meet Incubi.. The demented sibling of the boogyman. According to folklore, this demonic figure is partial to a spot of rudies with his sleeping victims (I tell no lie). Tame in comparison to his younger brother, whom takes pleasure in scratching at the windows of misbehaving children and for those unlucky few, he may even be hiding under the bed giving the misbehaved a tickle whilst they sleep (the lights may be kept on tonight). The Architect turned menswear designer Adam Kimmel may have enjoyed his encounter a tad too much, as he proposed payment to come in the form of his distinctly American designs, rather than the traditional payment of a Benjamin on the bedside table (not that i would know.... Seriously I don't! HA). Putting my odd fantasies to one side, I came across Adam Kimmel's AW10 look book and was instantly drawn to his gremlin like breed of models and not to the actual looks. After a brief snigger (small things amuse small minds) attention turns to the velvet, which I gratefully appreciate. What I don't appreciate is that weird sensation you get when you touch the mongrel fabric - the very same sensation I get from touching cotton wool (shiver). Plus Im not feeling the whole bow-tie/ dandy malarky - i just don't get it and never have. That aside... Id like to acquire a piece or two - maybe the double breasted red velvet blazer.
