Visvim Visits Chicago
Hiroki Nakamura was in the building on Monday and Tuesday of this week. The guy is a real pleasure to be around and definitely has some very reasonable and specific sensibilities that you don't run into as much as you'd like to. I took a few photos while he was here, one of an amazingly nice leather jacket (that he has on in one of the shots), and another of a sample boot. Note with the boot that the sole construction is going to be of higher quality and will include a skin stitch.
His time here included another tour and lots of questions about the manufacture of our leather. It's great to see a designer with an appreciation for all parts of the process, and it clearly gives him the knowledge to put out some great products.
