At Copenhagen Fashion Week SS15, Sleek got a sneak peek into the studios of a few of our favourite designers working in the Danish capital. Check back later this week for more.
Henrik Vibskov made waves at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year when he presented his SS15 collection alongside a performance by dancers from the Norwegian National Ballet.
Gliding through a shallow pool adorned in black dancewear, the dancers performed an outtake from “Swan Lake”, a performance of which Vibskov previously did costume design for, as played by the Norwegian National Ballet. The set, said Vibskov, was very simple, but the movements of the dancers in the water was so inspiring, he had to bring the dancers and their pool to Paris for his showcase there.
The performance proved the perfect complement to a collection Vibskov claims was largely inspired by “weird things happening in water.”
“We normally try to work with four or five completely different subjects and wait to see how they all tie together.”
For the SS15 collection, one of those subjects was water. The other? Concrete and bricks.
“Maybe one of the biggest visions for mankind is how we want to be remembered. And that’s a big part of building,” said the once interior designer.
