Visvim LA Trunk Show

Last weekend, Union LA hosted and produced a private trunk show at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles for cult Japanese brand, Visvim. The show featured the label’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Collection highlights include hand dyed Cowichan knitwear and footwear employing Native American tanning and dying methods, using elk brain and mud. Nakamura also features vintage African cotton and prints, as well as a proprietary natural indigo dye that took nearly a year to perfect. Prices for Visvim products have gone up considerably over the past year, especially in the US, but you can be confident you are getting a well-made product. Visvim distribution continues to be tight in the US but you can always find select pieces at Union LA.
