Hiroki Nakamura's sustainable takes on traditional dress.

On our minds is Visvim’s celebratory ode to handcrafted methods at their recent NYFW presentation. With a flair for artisanal techniques and vintage suppliers, designer Hiroki Nakamura has made it his thing to travel the world for inspiration and sourcing, borrowing from history and blending cultures into new contexts and time-honoured designs. The AW16 collection saw traditional Japanese jackets and kimonos repurposed from other garments in denim, velvet, Harris tweed and other unexpected reused materials, more often than not vegetable-dyed by hand. See the full collection here.
