The Spring/Summer collection from Visvim hit the UK this week, and it includes some incredibly well put together and detailed pieces of both footwear and apparel, taking inspiration from the heritage of the brand’s native Japan.
The return of the Curso Parka and Albacore shirt are hugely welcome, incorporating Japanese floral fabrics into the arms of the shirt and taping inside the hood of the beige Gore-Tex parka. The collection also includes two canvas wallets which, if you’re prepared to make the investment, are a beautifully detailed and well made accessory. My personal favourite are the Flynt Hi Sashiko shoes, particularly the navy cowhide suede with cross stitched binding and woven decal on the heel of the off-white vulc sole. The Patrician-Folk, Visvim’s take on the classic brogue, is another beautiful and incredibly detailed piece, with a blue Lama hide upper, and red Vibram outsole.
As always with Visvim, prices certainly aren’t cheap, but you’re paying for quality, materials, details, and exclusivity, that you just don’t really get with any other brand. The collection is available in extremely limited numbers from End Clothing now.
