As I'm making some plans for fall to go to New York, I searched the net for some
nice hotels. If I'm going, I don't want to stay in Manhattan but in Brooklyn or so.
And that's how I found The Wythe Hotel, a converted turn-of-the-century factory with 72 rooms, a rooftop bar, and a stand-out restaurant. The hotel is one block from the Brooklyn waterfront in Williamsburg, a once-industrial neighborhood transformed by artists, entrepreneurs, and a new wave of immigrants.
More than a single style, visvim embodies a singleminded methodology.
Since its foundation in 2000 by designer Hiroki Nakamura, visvim has been an ongoing exercise in the pursuit of joy and timeless beauty through the discovery and creation of footwear and clothing products.
This pursuit has manifested itself in different forms - Gore-Tex outerwear, natural indigo-dyed kimonos, Native American-inspired sneakers - but the driving force behind each product has stayed the same.
Along this journey it has often been necessary to look back in order to progress forward, which just might be the truest way to articulate the visvim concept.
visvim is a journey to find happiness through creation, and the products and collections that are born each season are our most honest attempts at reaching towards that goal.
