Hiroki Nakamura’s Visvim return with the first delivery from their highly anticipated Autumn/Winter 2012 footwear collection. As ever, the range perfectly showcases the level of craftsmanship and expertise that goes into delivering every piece Visvim, mixing premium materials with an unwavering attention to detail.
The first drop is footwear-heavy, comprising six classic Visvim silhouettes. The Skagway Hi Oka has an all-American classic profile, reminiscent of the classic Chuck Taylor, given a true Nakamura dynamic with distinctive striped cotton uppers. In contrast, the iconic Grizzly Boot is comparatively muted, with natural vegetable-tanned cowhide constructed uppers and rugged Vibram lug-sole unit. The highlight of the footwear has to be the FBT Bearfoot Pizi Folk FBT, an updated version of Visvim’s most iconic shoe, available in three colourways. The Bearfoot has a very natural aesthetic, with the use of premium suede, woven ‘bead’ detailing and a stream-lined sole unit. The footwear collection is neatly complemented by pieces from the clothing collection. One of the quintessential pieces from the Visvim catalogue, the Albacore shirt is the archetypal Oxford shirt constructed from a premium cotton and accented with its distinctive pattern panel running along the sleeve.
As usual this latest Visvim drop is extremely limited, and we would advise heading over to the your local Visvim stockists for more details.
