Henrik Vibskov AW16 men’s wear, 23. januar 2016 Paris Fashion Week 

Lørdag aften blev Paris centrum for kemi og fysik La Maison de la Chimie omdannet til et centrum for modefolk. Vibkovs shows er ikke kun i København et stort tilløbsstykke, og salen var proppet til sidste blodsdråbe. 

På midten af gulvet var opstillet 200 træhoveder. Under dem sad folk fra team Vibs og træk i snore, der fik dem til at bevæge deres træmunde; klonk klonk lød det! I følge Vibskov lever vi nemlig i en tid med et overload af information, der tvinger os til konstant at være “på” – hvem er uenig i den påstand? Men Vibskov tager skridtet videre og mener, at vi skal beskytte os imod informationerne – for at beskytte sin modeller havde han udstyret dem med træagtige pansere på fødder og hoveder. 

Kollektionens silhuet var simpel og voluminøse dunjakker og vige culotte bukser til begge køn gav den liv og et interessant touch. Mørke farver stod i kontrast til klar gul, blå og rød som var inspireret af emballage fra 1950’erne. De løse styles gav modellerne et androgynt look, og navnligt til mænd tyder det på at Vibskov ikke kan få nok af volumen i busker og jakker. Big is more!

Saturday evening Paris’ center of chemistry and physics La Maison de la Chime was turned into a center of fashion. The fashion shows of Henrik Vibskov are not only popular in Copenhagen and the show was stuffed to the limit. 

Henrik Vibskov is known for his artistic installations that accompany his shows. This time an ocean of 200 wooden heads were placed in the middle of the scene, and their wooden mouths were constantly opening and closing throughout the show. Their broken language symbolized the overload of information and misinformation that surrounds us and in Vibskov’s opinion drives humanity to the boarder of sanity. Humanity has to be protected from this and therefore Vibskov dressed his models in studio made armor like wood pieces that were used as ornaments on footwear and headpieces. 

The silhouette of the collection was simple and an interesting touch was the volume in jackets and culotte-pants, which brought life to the collection. A palette of dark colors were contrasted with bright colors inspired by 50’s labeling and packaging. The loose fit of the collection gave the models an androgen look and it seemed like Vibskov cannot get enough of volume especially for the men’s wear: Big is more!
