With Copenhagen’s fashion week in full swing, we check out the Spring/Summer 2016 collection from Danish designer Henrik Vibskov.
Danish designer Henrik Vibskov returned to Copenhagen’s fashion week to unveil a pattern-heavy collection that defied easy categorization. Sharp geometric shapes and a boisterous palette of navy, red and gold adorned a line that played heavily with proportions and silhouettes; with bulbous, oversized bombers, loose, cropped trousers and elongated shirting.
Particular highlights included the boxy bombers printed with oversized circles, and the jacquard-woven knitwear imbued with meandering, snake-like patterns, while the braver dressers out there may be tempted by the designer’s black leather derbies sporting yet more head-turning color play.
While fashion’s mainstream fawns over all things sporty, minimalist and street, Henrik Vibskov’s presentation was a statement of intent; clearly this is a designer that is happy to create his own world and fill it with his own distinctive quirks and idiosyncrasies.
