Henrik Vibskov AW16
On Wednesday night, Henrik Vibskov presented his latest collection at Copenhagen Fashion Week – and as always the avant-garde fashion designer didn’t disappoint. Set in the grandiose Copenhagen City Hall, and with an installation counting over 200 hand-painted wooden heads, the Danish designer delivered a magnificent show accompanied by a classic Vibskov-esque collection featuring oversized pieces, colorful patterns and an inferno of stripes.
To the trippy beat of “We Carry On” by Portishead and more than 200 wooden heads rattling simultaneously throughout the show, Vibskov managed to create a stressful and alarming soundscape paralyzing his audience as a result.
In an interview with Soundvenue, Vibskov explains the vision of the collection, and he mentions that the wooden heads were used to illustrate the amount of communication/miscommunication, we as humans are exposed to on a daily basis. He also talks about how the headpieces worn by all the models were meant to “protect” them from the blabbering mob of wooden heads.
Fun fact: Vibskov wasn’t supposed to show at this year’s Autumn/Winter edition of Copenhagen Fashion Week, but due to a succesful presentation in Paris, he changed his mind.
All in all a great show and a highly wearable collection from Henrik Vibskov, who once more proves that he still reigns among the very best Danish designers right now. In the pictures below, you can check out three of the most significant looks from the collection:
