Japanese publication, Sense Magazine showcase visvim’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection entitled “Dissertation on Humanity in Manufacturing”, in their continuing “TEXT in visvim” editorial. As the brand introduce new pieces like the kimono style robes and the Tabi Shosiko-Folk shoe, they sit alongside updated GORE-TEX jackets, and the new Virgil boot. The Virgil boot is constructed with German Deerskin with an upper that’s been hand dyed using mud and indigo techniques, which were practised during the Japanese Edo period. This manufacturing process is reflected in the pricing, as the Virgils boots retail at ¥176, 400 JPY (approximately $2, 298 USD), showing that you’re clearly paying for a premium product.
