IN FOCUS: VISVIM MEN'S F/W 2017
INTO THE GROOVE
Visvim designer Hiroki Nakamura is on a constant quest to add a contemporary and Japanese-inflected spin to handcrafted methods and time-honored techniques, often revisiting some greatest hits of the past and cultural period references. Travel is also a major source of ideas. For fall, Nakamura layered volumes, proportions and colors to a cool effect mismatching an array of kimono jackets often with velvet lapels and hand-stitched details, toggle coats, shearlings, utility jackets and suede bombers, plus a host of signature ink blue denim. Founded in 2001 by Nakamura, Visvim has a strong focus on craftsmanship and carefully sourced materials. Influenced by global travel, especially classic Americana and Native American style, each impeccably made piece is packed with character.
