NEIGHBORHOOD approaches this season in reverence to the ocean with all-over prints depicting aquatic life.

visvim® Lhamo Shirt Linen
Natural dyes offer vivid colours without synthetic ingredients. These pigments are derived from such plants as alder bark, common madder, sagebrush and indigo. In using natural dyes, visvim® preserves the natural weightlessness of the linen. Typical fabric dyeing breaks down the fibre of the textile, resulting in something rough to the touch. The natural dye process leaves this Lhamo linen shirt effortlessly gauzy and lightweight for warm summer days.

At the left sleeve is UNDERCOVER’s iconic clear insert to easily view a watch face. Rounding out the details are taped seams in an assortment of colours. An essential piece for any UNDERCOVER collector.
