Dear Shaded Viewers,
I went to Copenaghen Fashion Week and I want share with you the brands I will consider keeping under the radar!
Henrik Vibskov (first row of images)
He is currently the only Scandinavian designer on the official show schedule of the Paris Men’s Fashion Week since January 2003. His style is always recognizable as a good example of sporty couture with a playful imagery set in surprising shows. This season he took us into the nutty universe of The Jaw Nuts Piece. A 22 meter long scissor structure that carried 200 blabbering and clapping wooden heads. The wooden heads are a postmodern and Asian inspired take on the traditional nutcracker. The heads’ broken language is simulating a time of an extreme and overwhelming state of mind. The confusion around us, the deconstruction of emotions, the deconstructions of clothes. An inferno of stripes and colours erupted by the con- struction of the garment. A palette of dark end colours are contrasted with bright colours inspired by 50’s flair, colours of an offset printer and post-modern paintings. Italian custom made bonded wool in black and white, wide pants, soft wool and 3D knitwear that looked like piece of art. A couple of total black exits with elongated jumpers and harem pants for a more minimal’s take. Funny, creative and totally wearable. (Photos Elle Moos)
