Yes, it happened on 3 of the zips on mine. I went and bought replacement RiRi ones and attached them. It took about 20 mins per zip

Where did you get the replacement zips from?

I’ve got one from 2017 where both of the main compartment zips have broken, and one from 2007 that is still going strong. Think the RRP on the 2017 bag was 4x the 2007 one.

So basic. I'd hit the roof if that happened after spending so much.

Do Vis offer any kind of aftercare?

They didn’t offer anything… ignored my emails.
I googled riri zips and found them in a textile shop in East London.

I will try and dig out the details.

Okay - I got mine from a place called London Trimmings.

They stocked the sliders (pulls) for the following styles:
RiRi Flach and RiRi KTA in the following sizes M4, M6 and M8

have Visvim prices soared in the last few years ? Was never that into it, but some of the stuff on Mr. Porter has a mental price point. £700 for an Albacore and £6.5k for a puffer jacket. It's pretty absurd

I like the gear but it's a deeply pretentious and slightly cuntish brand in my opinion.

Riri zippers are usually spot on, did visvim purchase a bad batch or something on those bags?

I wish Visvim wasn’t so expensive. Would love to still be able to afford pieces. Pretty much sold everything off except some shoes/boots/trainers I kept. Don’t own anymore clothing except a few tshirts. Love there outer wear but prices are insane now. Especially paying 6.5k for a puffy jacket when the zippers gonna break.

The web shop has the price in yen if you change location to japan. I almost bought a lhamo shirt last year but didn’t like the new fit of it to the old version. It was £300+ or something for a cotton open shirt.


¥96000 yen for jeans

+1

but compared to GBP or EUR it's sometimes a bargain

if you are a 3 to 4 you could be lucky and find all the stuff you want in your size! for all the other stuff, there will be a HK/ Chinese guy who bought everything

Miss the days it was 200-210 Yen to £GBP. Then the global recession hit, fell to 110 yen to £GBP. It started to recover to around 170-180 before Brexit referendum hit. Hovers around 140 yen now, which means everything is 40% more expensive than it used to be, regardless of "yearly inflationary" increases. Also miss the $2 USD to £GBP days too…

£ is worthless nowadays Sad
