Copenhagen Fashion Week: Henrik Vibskov ‘THE SUN WILL SHINE ON THE ASSEMBLY LINE’

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I know Henrik Vibskov since the beginning of his career when he was being followed around by the Danish national TV Channel at the Festival d’Hyeres. His shows are like rock concerts in Copenhagen. This year the studio collection is inspired by porcelain the old, the new, the fragile and the strong,  combinations  “where cracks and broken pieces become beautiful.” The pale white lustrous surface talks to your senses and the smooth surface reminds of skin asking to be touched.”

Silhouettes are inspired by shapes of vases and bowls, prints are taken from systematic machinery and factories, repetitions of tiles, smooth surfaces and porcelain flowers falling apart. Color blocking is inspired by Japanese manualtie-dyeing Shibori technique.

93% of the collection can be considered sustainable, in the way the materials are either of organic origin or recycled. All fabrics and trims are evaluated based on their sustainable qualities, and the choices for the collection are made thereafter. The fabrics include organic cotton, recycled polyester and recycled PET bottles for padding in outerwear, Tencel made from upcycled cotton linter and cellulose fibers, European linen and virgin wool. Certificates include BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) and GOTS,plus Økotex for colors, dyes and prints.
