visvim’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection – another look
After featuring the shots of visvim’s new season from Honeyee magazine a couple of weeks ago (find it here), new images have now been released showing some of the garments being worn. These should give a much better idea of how everything truly looks.
I reckon my initial thought that everything was going to look great being worn was correct. If these images are anything to go by then in my opinion this is a brilliant collection.
It’s a shame that there aren’t any images of the down jacket being worn (at least it’s shown though) or the Patrician mid-folk as I’d have loved to have seen more shots of these. What you do see here though is cracking – I know I’m always harping on about mixing textures and layering and all of that malarky but this shows why, because it looks great when it’s done properly.
I love the clothes in the first and third shots – the way the Cashmere stole sits with technical jacket and the wool/cotton mix trousers (although personally I think they’re far too short for winter, regardless of material) would work well just with the differing materials in similar shades, add in the colours used though and you’ve got a winning combination.
The other ‘look’ I really like is the suit in the ninth shot. The jacket with its four button placket is an nice change from the norm – I wonder if there’s another button further up still as there is on Nigel Cabourn’s Mallory jacket? Whatever the answer it’s a smart looking piece and works well when paired up with the chunky socks and boots, which give it a totally different feel to wearing it with traditional shoes. The pocket square matching the more technical outerwear is a nice touch too.
All in all it seems to be an assured collection and one that’s full of interesting silhouettes as well as being quite playful. No doubt it’s one that we in the UK will see only a small number of pieces from though. If you want to see what items we do get then UK stockists are The Hideout (London), Dover Street Market (London), HIP (Leeds) and Heartless (Essex).
