Paris Fashion Week – Visvim Fall/Winter 2013

Every season, Visvim has a statement piece called the Discovery piece and this time, it was a Cochineal dyed hand knitted wool sweater. Cochineal beetles are killed and their carcasses are grinded up to create a dye. This dying process is very complex and was traditionally used for the garments of South American tribe chieftains. Visvim has been refining their signature pieces with different fabrics and has added only a few new styles to their collection. Many of the new styles come in the form of footwear and unfortunately could not be photographed. The new shoes included a high-top Yucca and an updated duckboat. The Lhamo shirts came in an ultra light weight brushed indigo cotton and some of the shirts featured velvet on the cuffs of the sleeve. The collection had all the usual pieces and some of my favorite pieces were the Albacore shirts with cotton pique elbow patches, the green Artifact Coverall jacket and the triple layered Gore-Tex parka.
