The top Mocassin's by VISVIM, were inspired by these indian mocassins below it.
as you can see, the bottom pair were inspired by the top pair.
The top pair were inspired by the bottom pair from the EDO period. SO SO SOOO COOL!

all of these pieces were from the old days...
These were from the 1940's..and don't see you them in a few shops in Tokyo NOW?

VISVIM is by far one of the most respected brands in Japan and this exhibition really blew me away. Everyone will be able to see this exhibition from TOMORROW October 29th until November 26th. You can check about the info here: VISVIM: study & practice exhibition It was really amazing to understand where designer Hiroki Nakamura got his inspiration from. It makes me respect those waaay before our time so much more, thinking about how talented they were to be the FIRST to design and hand-make such items..only for us to RE-MAKE them to fit our present time. History really does repeat itself.
