Visvim S/S 14 – “Dissertation On a Happiness with No Country”

Hiroki Nakamura presents his Spring/Summer 2014 collection of indigo-heavy garments titled, “Dissertation On a Happiness with No Country.”

Japanese label Visvim is known for its wabi-sabi approach to design and its seasonal lookbooks are testimony to designer Hiroki Nakamura’s wide cultural references. The S/S 14 collection proves no different, combining an eclectic array of props alongside the new collection. Channeling a reinterpretation of laid-back rural lifestyles, the collection features a large assortment of antique style denim goods in simple colors which showcase Nakamura’s auteur level of design. Patchwork pants, sateen chore coats and neckerchief print tunics are notable pieces from the more rustic end of the collection while quilted vests, breton stripe tops and American Flag tees balance out the more urban-oriented offerings.

To celebrate the newly launched collection, Japan’s magazine SENSE has run one of its   brand-specific editorials to showcase their interpretation on the season. For the S/S 14 edition, the publication has unveiled the latest looks from its seasonal “Text in visvim” project to highlight pieces from the label.

Take a look at the first installments of the collection at visvim’s online store and in store at Dover Street Market London.
