Stirred up by visions of rotating cement mixers, construction sites, bricks, swimming pools and water sports, Henrik Vibskov’s latest macrocosm is a whirlpool of outlandish invention. Models adorned with monk-like headpieces and specially made tight fitting neoprene water shoes tread the catwalk, and showed a collection balanced perfectly between eccentric innovation and wearability.
Fonts are blown up on knits, artworks rotate, and brick motifs become the building blocks of sweat styles. Double-faced jersey is cut up and re-constructed, and 3d structures are created out of intricately assembled patterns. Transparency is featured in striped net styles, and reflections of water and the body shapes of divers are constant themes in the collection. Silhouettes are round and curved, and divided circles come together to create relaxed summer suits. Strong orange, white and mint stand out amongst more subtle dark blues and curry shades.
