Visvim soars around the pinnacle of functional clothing. Few other labels can match their influence on the casual clothing scene. In many ways they are a conceptual label, because the ideas of designer Hiroki Nakamura seems to be executed regardless of cost. There is no compromise in quality. Visvim is pretty much how far you can take quality in the hybrid segment of casual and functional clothing. Before SS11 Nakamura went to Monument Valley for inspiration, this gave birth to a special Vibram sole with a Monument Valley profile underneath, only to be used on a couple of limited styles for that specific season and never again. This is just one of many examples, the list is too long to mention here. It is truly inspiring to visit their showroom and experience the Visvim esthetic, minimal but still rich in sensations due to superb craftsmanship and exquisite details.
