CFW: Henrik Vibskov Spring/Summer 2011

 Henrik Vibskov is perhaps one of the most well known names currently operating within the Danish fashion scene. His Spring/Summer 2011 was then final show at Copenhagen Fashion Week, but thankfully, they had saved one of the best for last.

The show itself was held in a public park, on a wooden bridge over a pond to be exact. This more then fitted Vibskcov’s designs.  As the models turned the bridge into their catwalk, we saw each one don a pair of dark goggles and a strange head bonnet contraption. These two pieces were ubiquitous on all of the models, and this became the stamp of the show.

Vibskov is no stranger to prints, and this collection saw eclectic prints barging in on one another - sometimes clashing prints side by side were made more mellow with a tailored shirt - while a retro stripped dress in an unstructured, baggy form showed the power of the simple  pattern, as well as Vibskov’s eye for colour coordination. An emphasis was placed on structure or lack thereof - with suited pieces for the men, and slouchy laidback dresses for women.

This collection was typical Vibskov - from the location, to the whimsical designs and the characters he conjured up and sent down the runway - it was clear from the get-go that he poured his imagination into this collection and distilled the exact idea to perfection.
