Visvim's Hiroki Nakamura

Dear Shaded Viewers,

As soon as they upload I will post a few sound bytes from Hiroki. After lunch Philippe and I went to visit the Visvim showroom. Hiroki walked us through the collection and I have to say there is such a difference when you find clothing with a soul. What sets Visvim apart from other collections is the amount of research both in textiles and craftsmanship but beyond all that it is the love that goes into each piece. Like I said, clothing with a soul. More later.
