Fashion designer Adam Kimmel has announced he'll be taking a year off of designing his line so that the designer can focus on himself for a little bit.

"After ten years and eighteen collections, I have decided to take a year-long sabbatical from fashion. I intend to use this time to enrich my vision, spend time with my family, and explore a number of creative arenas that have interested me while I’m still young," said Kimmel.

He's still got a couple of projects that will see the light of day, namely his Fall/Winter 2012/2013 collection, and collaborations with Carhartt and Supreme. 

"I am a designer and creator, first and foremost, I look forward to utilizing this next year to experiment and learn, and channel what I find into new concepts, designs and projects. I believe this is how designers become better stewards to their work." [Hypebeast]
