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. Hiroki in a Chromexcel Jacket - great design on the pockets, and the burgundy is special.

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.
