visvim will celebrate its 20th-anniversary this year, further cementing its place atop streetwear’s progressive totem pole. For close to two decades, Hiroki Nakamura has expressed his unique sense of artistry, born out of respect from his Japanese roots, with plenty of American workwear and tribal culture codes imbued throughout. The label’s Spring/Summer 2020 narrative is bolstered even further with the addition of these three new pieces; introducing the Kerchief Down Jacket, Grease Monkey Coat and Cecile Shirt.
Although deceptively simple in design, the capsule’s creative apex is realized through sporadic paint splatter speckles etched along the bottom of each. The Kerchief Down Jacket and Grease Monkey Coat are dressed in a creamy beige hue, with red, blue and white markings underscoring each. The minimally styled latter sets the stage for its counterpart to shine bright, boasting shiny gold buttons, horizontal quilt partitions and western-style shoulder panels. The Cecile Shirt, on the other hand, stands alone as the offering’s sole tonal deviation. A front pocket stamped on the left chest and the closed-placket button closure also help characterize the peculiar button-down shirt.
