ripvanwinkle is yet another Japanese label that i’ve been tracking over the past couple years. A bit more dress than streetwear, they also produce a bunch of excellent basics pieces, most notably sweats. And while their own f/w presentation isn’t really my thing aesthetically, the always-excellent SENSE just did this editorial shoot for their Oct 2011 edition, showcasing the line how I would have. Peep the seasonal catalog here, and more editorial shots after the jump.
SENSE Magazine has done another stellar editorial featuring Tom Ford, this time highlighting his spring 2010 collection, styled by Tomoki Sukezane and photographed by Junji Hata.

Visvim has become one of the most regarded and sought-after fashion labels to emerge from Japan in the last decade. The line has gained quite a following and a lot success since it’s inception back in 2000. Japanese magazine SENSE has done this full feature on the Visvim Fall/Winter 2009 collection, as well as a small interview with Hiroki Nakamura, the founder and head designer of the brand. I have followed the line for a few years now, usually liking their footwear but this collection is one that I really enjoy, particularly the leather rider-style Strabler jacket and the Skagway Hi Elston sneaker in the cognac brown color. The styles are classic and the fits are modern, using only the finest materials and construction methods, this collection shows why Visvim is a leader in this market.
