MARFAKIND is a video collaboration that merges the imagery of graphic fences, unconventional structures and abandoned spaces that first inspired textile designer Kieley Kimmel to design and produce her first women’s fashion line, also called Marfakind.
The video piece is at once inspired by the unique and colorful structures within the film location as well as the more conceptual idea of exploration and unbound potential that one feels when wandering in a dream. This is the first video collaboration around fashion label Kieley Kimmel, and was filmed at the edges of the dry, deserted Los Angeles the designer now calls home.
The Marfakind Collection was released during the 2013 S/S season and can be purchased directly from the designer at kieleykimmel.com or at select boutiques throughout the country, also listed on her website.
