An introduction to VISVIM
VISVIM creates future vintage. The japanese brand combines the heritage of americana culture with the heritage of manufacturing processes and creates something completely new.
By the use of hundred year old dying techniques they get color effects that can’t be recreated by machines.
Antique weaving techniques create a different feel and the use of selected materials from all over the world make every product unique.
The designs on the T-Shirts are handpainted, often with selfmade colors.
One of their most recognizable footwear pieces is the FBT, a super comfortable twist on an indian moccasin silhouette.
Travelling is a very important part, as the influences and materials/techniques come from all over the world, curated by founder Hiroki Nakamura.
VISVIM is now part of the MRQT brand portfolio and available, instore @_mrqt_ & online on www.mrqt.net
For their latest drop Stüssy delivers a broad variety of graphic tees with colored prints, pigment dyed tees, beachpants, graphic shirts and basic sleeves. Satin and denim jackets fulfill the introduction to this years Spring/Summer collection. Browse through the different styles via www.mrqt.net/stussy or instore in our MRQT boutique.
As always Tyrone Lebon shot an editorial, capturing Stüssy’s aesthetic for this season.
For their holiday collection 16/17 Born & Raised deliver us their first Cut & Sew collection. They follow their roots with big, bold prints and their famous logo on mostly cream, burgundy and black pieces. All items are made in the USA.
We compiled some of our favorite fall/winter 2016 looks from our current brand portfolio at MRQT, including Our Legacy, Gosha Rubchinskiy, 11 by BBS, Stüssy, Libertine-Libertine, Le-Fix, Second Layer, Norse Projects, Raf Simons x Fred Perry and Maharishi.
All pictures are taken by L.A. based photographer Daniel Regan.
The new season takes inspirations from subcultures as gangs, crews and tribes but also military platoons. As in previous collections maharishi represents a range of duality, as nature meets technology or east meets west. Aesthetics are taken from uniforms and moral codes of these brotherhoods and are complemented in the use of banners and badges as well as front and center branding. A new color by the name of Lama is inspired by the habits of Tibetan Buddhist monks. The construction is japanese tailoring with japanese fabrics and clean cuts.
Gosha Rubchinskiy just dropped his new footwear collaboration for Autum/Winter ’16 with reebok and branded it with PACCBET: (RASSVET) means sunrise. РАССВЕТ is a power, the beginning of a new day. A new day, a new life, a new world.” The collabo consits of two classic silhouettes: The Workout Plus and the ExoFit Hi Clean, both in full leather uppers with minimal branding: Reebok on the left shoes and of course, Paccbet on the right one.
But PACCBET is not only a branding that he used throughout several collections, it is also the name of Gosha’s new label, founded together with russian pro skater and muse Tolia Titaev. It is supposed to be a new skatelabel, with basic designs by Titaev himself.
The L.A. brand describes their style as „chicano-minimal“, which couldn’t be described better. Drawing their main inspiration from 80’s collections of high end fashion brands, that blends in with their surf-/ skate heritage and chicano roots. Clean cuts, high quality materials and that laidback L.A. Style transferred into elegant simplicity. Watch out for the fall/ winter ’16 season dropping on MRQT.net soon – Meanwhile check out the lookbook!
Stüssy and Tyrone Lebon team up again for the latest F/W ’16 lookbook and this time they chose Paris as destination. The editorial is referencing to the classics, playing with the boundaries between street culture and high art. The rebellious history of France in combination with the modern Paris are main themes, while paying homage to the big and low culture of the city of love.
“When UK style and music had a strong influence in Belgium I became aware of the label through all the subcultures that adopted the Fred Perry shirt. I only realised the tennis connection at a later age.”
Fred Perry, the classic british brand named after the legendary tennis player of the 1930’s mostly known for its wide range of polo shirts meets Raf Simons, the belgian enfant terrible of the contemporary fashion scene. The classic british design gets a fashionable twist, with subtle colour blocking and high end fabrics.
