CONTEMPORARY | Karen Kimmel


Karen Kimmel is the Creative Director and Chief Curator of a Nike brand activation space, the founder of Crafting Community and Kimmel Kids, an installation artist, a mother of two ridiculously adorable kids, and it goes on from there (really). What most of her bios won't tell you though, is that she has one of the most incredible sneaker collections of any lady I know. 
Full disclosure, not only does Karen work for Nike, but she is married to the founder of Undefeated. Sneaker power couple! I was dying over her shoe closet, from Damien Hirst and Missoni for Converse to Liberty of London Nikes to your basic Vans Canvas Authentics, she has quite a line up. Shoes aside, Karen is so multi-talented and multi-faceted as an artist and designer and human that it's almost impossible to write something short about her. So I'll end with just a quick Karen Kimmel PSA: Wednesday morning (11/28), her One King's Lane Tastemaker Tag Sale goes live where she's selling limited edition prints, kid's toys, vintage finds and all sorts of rad KK goods. Check it out!
