From the pages of this month’s SENSE Magazine comes the next installment in the ongoing “TEXT in visvim” editorial. Fantastic examples of layering appear throughout the photoshoot, which features items from the new Fall/Winter 2011 collection entitled “Dissertation on Humanity in Manufacturing.” Head designer Hiroki Nakamura has taken influences from his home country of Japan for this collection with tabi shoes and kimono-styled robes mixed in with ever-present items such as 3/4-length pants and GORE-TEX jackets. visvim has always been known for their unique and interesting ways of producing their products and this season is no different. Take the new Virgil boots for example. Made from German deerskin, the upper has been hand-dyed using a mud and indigo technique that was used during the Japanese Edo period. These techniques come at a price though, with the new Virgil boots retailing for ¥176,400 JPY (approximately $2,298 USD). visvim’s “Dissertation on Humanity in Manufacturing” collection is now available from F.I.L. stores and visvim stockists around the world.
