The traditions of Japan are the inspiration behind the visvim SS 2012 'Japanism' Collection. The brand looks towards their Japanese roots for the upcoming line.

As expected, the visvim SS 2012 'Japanism' Collection shows off what the brand can do with fabrics when they manipulate it for the sake of style. A few of the pieces have a nice washed-out, worn-out look, most notably the high-top sneakers and the denims, which have a few additional design twists. There are hoodies and scarves, but the real highlights are the bags and the shirts, which take on traditional Japanese graphics. The collection is colorful, vibrant and plays to the theme extremely well. The brand has even put in traditional Japanese sandals called the Geta into the line.
