Separating ‘Patina’ from it’s passive connotations, this AW14 is designed to inspire you to wear in an item with love and care, creating beauty through a patina that has been achieved with purpose, through the action of the wearer.

Translating the level of care and attention throughout every single aspect of the collection, Nakamura designs each piece not just from the pattern up, or even from the fabric up, but from the yarn itself, striving to deliver the best product possible, one that reveals the hard work put into it over time.

A collection that shows just why this visionary Japanese designer has cemented his brand at the top of the game, the AW14 collection from Visvim is online now.
