  • Insider Notes

    • Viviers’ Waffle Knit Top brings refined simplicity to the forefront. Handcrafted from an airy blend of linen and cotton at the brand’s atelier in Johannesburg, South Africa, the material has been expertly treated to create the effect of shrunken pleats and finished with the sashiko stitch—a recurring element in the brand’s collection. Notice the delicate contrast-colored beads adorning the ties that can be adjusted to create the perfect fit. Complement the fresh white hue with a printed skirt and gilded accessories.

South Africa


Founded in 2019 by designer Lezanne Viviers, South African label Viviers offers handcrafted concept pieces that eschew the latest trends in favor of unique, considered, and sustainable styles. Created from Viviers’ Johannesburg-based Lotus House atelier that also doubles as a concept store, the studio’s garments present a unique marriage of femininity and androgyny.
