Americana Deck looks like its going to very, very expensive. And looks even more Sperry-like and close to Hockney Folk. ToneJG, you must be very happy.

from HN's post:

Our FW Visvim 2008 season will start this weekend in Japan. Please come by F.I.L. and take a look at our new product.

This season we've continued our exploration of the various relationships between different materials and different "technologies." One of the products that we're launching this weekend is the Americana Deck, which is made using leather from Horween, a 100 year old traditional American tannery.

F.I.L. Hong Kong will begin selling the S/S collection and Folk series on Aug 23rd.

Ok, I get Visvim's cultish status (I overpaid for a pair of Soph Hockneys, myself), and the supreme (no pun intended) limitedness of this particular model, and the Folk line's overwhelming emphasis on comfort but... these will inevitably cost $400-550 in-store... for what appear to be Quoddy's, (also manufactured to exacting standards) which cost $150.

Won't they ever make just regular-old Hockneys again?

i dont get what he means by FIL HK will start selling the S/S collection 8/23.

im assuming a typo.

probably means that FIL HK will get their stock much later compared to FIL in JP.

And with the Rico Visvim continues its tradition of using innovative materials, graduating from Elk leather to meringue as it's primary fabric.

jsn, thanks for the pics. And you're right about me being happy with those new hockneys. It's good to see the folk series again, I think it's the best example of what visvim is all about. I'm also interested in seeing how some of the new materials will compare.

I could be slightly mistaken, but I'm pretty sure FBT Double-Tone came out FW 05-06 and Shakers came out SS05. While the Shamans I think SS06.
