In happier times… Visvim and designer Hiroki Nakamura played host last week to the label’s seasonal trunk show. With a good dose of conviction from Union Los Angeles, the location was changed from the usual fare of Tokyo to the Greater Los Angeles area, where the scope of Visvim’s popularity finally became clear. Among the friends and families, long time fans such as Mr. Bentley and Mos Def swung by for a few purchases. But the true highpoint of the moment was when Eric Clapton walked in and had an engrossing conversation with Nakamura about what else but the different elk species. Make us wonder whether Nakamura customized a few special pair just for the rock & roll legend.
