Henrik Vibskov rounded off day two of Copenhagen Fashion Week with his presentation at the Ostre Gasvaerk Theatre.
The large and impressive location brought crowds of excited fashion enthusiasts to view The Five O’clock Leg Alignment collection, which, following a successful showcase at Paris Men’s Fashion Week, was presented for the second time this season.
Inspired by the idea of controlling mind and body, the collection aimed to outline the importance of harmony in people’s life. The catwalk was set up around a temple of deformed yogis, who kicked off the show with a surreal performance of synchronised movements.
Models stepped up to the catwalk wearing big spiral earrings, a metaphor for those who hear, but don’t really listen. The collection was built around tones of red, white and blue through to pastels, monochrome, primary brights and the more autumnal colours. Clothes were oversized with a clash of graphics, large floral prints and vertical stripes. Quilted kimonos and wide overalls were tied with large belts, and through its oversized pockets and denim of circus proportions, the collection presented a dimensional play on architecture.
Oversized tartan coats and sweaters are not only the warm autumn/winter choices, but also very original ones. The texture of clothes, graphics and designs made the collection really high fashion, but wearable. We can’t wait for the collection to be out!
We interviewed the designer for Hoxton Radio straight after the show. A former resident of Hoxton himself, Vibskov tells us more about the inspiration behind the collection and that he’s been drumming since the age of 10. You can listen back on the link above, or HERE.
