visvim‘s “Peerless” Fall/Winter 2018 collection is, like all of the brand’s past collections, rich with exquisite craftsmanship. The latest Dissertation from the brand is all about this new collection, with a focus on the techniques and fabrics utilized to create key garments.
Each selection of items is briefly broken down in detail, including designer Hiroki Nakamura’s preferred nui-jime-dyed tunic shirts. Other features include an explanation of kago-zome & shibori-zome — Japanese tie-dye. Fabrics are scrunched up, squashed by by oversized cylinders and overdyed to yield beautifully inconsistent patterns, seen on this season’s knit cardigan, cowichan sweater and jumbo crewneck. Elsewhere, visvim touches on its custom shuttle-loomed canvas textile and bespoke, twill-woven & mud-dyed high density nylon, used to craft FW18 Magasin coats and Valdez coats respectively.
