Released as part of visvim’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection, the Kerchief Down Jacket has an exterior that’s covered in hand-applied paint spatters and an illustrated inner lining. While visvim was founded in 2001 as a footwear brand, minutiae notes that this particular piece is of significance as it’s one of the first designs from the label that focuses on the paint splatter motif. The workwear-style jacket also includes details such as yellow gold buttons, Western-style shoulder panels and subtle quilting to give it a touch of Americana. Leveraging his boundless knowledge for Japanese design, minutiae estimates the jacket will go for around $1,700 USD on GRAILED, and is likely your best option for nabbing the piece considering its initial limited release.
