The Rarefied Air of visvim
Combine visionary design with keen attention to detail and you have a pretty good thing. Consider cult favorite visvim, which achieved downright iconic status with its Native American moccasin that was hand-sewn to a running shoe. The fervor of visvim’s partisans is downright intense—devotees appreciate the Tokyo company’s love of classic design and its relentless modernity.
Visvim can now be found on the Third Floor of the Men’s Store. Their Fall Collection is arranged in front of a lovely indigo textile that founder and creative director, Hiroki Nakamura, installed on the wall. There’s a grey Donegal oxford shirt with a flecks of color, and winning khakis. But shoes remain pivotal to the brand, and the standout oxfords and sneakers built entirely by hand inspire the fiercest devotion. This is rarefied air—the true believers accept no substitute.
