“I first got into visvim when I was in high-school. I was working at a local shop that was a stockist in my hometown of Detroit,” said Fetterman. “I began collecting vistim six years ago… I saw how Hiroki Nakamura prioritizes traditional techniques, exquisite craftsmanship, and the durability and longevity of his creations. These are all of the qualities I personally value most.”
With the impressive lineup of visvim silhouettes from Fetterman now on sale, ranging from jackets, hoodies, shirts and footwear, the project is essentially aimed to broaden Fetterman’s archive with new pieces while ensuring that his items listed will be purchased by those who have coveted it mostly, as much as he did.
In regards to his favorites from the sale, the “Holtom Stole” is a standout, which is a large cashmere scarf with a large peace sign motif, a design inspired by artist Gerald Holtom in the 1950s and taken from visvim’s FW13 collection.
Other notable pieces include his “101 IT Suede jacket, which was hand-rubbed in ash to get its smokey effect, along with the Highland Knit Hoodie F.Z., which was crocheted using six different naturally-dyed yarns.” As a die-hard fan of the label, Fetterman further explained his admiration for the brand. “I think Hiroki’s brand evolves as he does,” Fetterman said, “He’s always discovering new materials, processes and manufacturers, and I can see that the brand grows with him and his new knowledge.”
You can shop the entire visvim archive sale spanning from past seasons, which includes 75 items on Grailed now.
