After focusing on the techniques of Yoshiko Jinzenji, visvim has moved the spotlight on to its Spring/Summer 2018 collection for its latest dissertation. The new examination looks at the patterns, prints and fabrics used throughout the new release, telling the story of where each one comes from and how it is produced.

Key themes spotlighted in the dissertation include the Bandana print that appears on silk shirts, vests, and coats and comes from a Hiroki Nakamura sketch, the New Mexico-inspired Chimayo wool pattern and the “Foliage” pattern, which is based around a traditional Japanese sign of prosperity and good fortune. Take a look at the pieces spotlighted above, and head over to the visvim site to learn more.

In related news, visvim has dropped new SKAGWAY LO DOGI updates.
