Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of The Sticky Brick Fingers, Henrik Vibskov’s Spring
Summer 2015 collection. Stirred up by visions of rotating cement mixers, construction sites, bricks,
swimming pools and water sports, Vibskov’s latest macrocosm is a whirlpool of outlandish invention.

In collaboration with the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet and choreographer Alexander Ekman,
and as an extension of their recent production of Swan Lake at Oslo Opera House, a 150 m2 shallow pool has been constructed and filled with 4000 litres of water, inside which 10 dancers from the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet elegantly splish and splash their way through a routine devised by renowned Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman. An internationally acclaimed name in the world of dance, Ekman is recognised and sought-after for his unique ability to pair wit and playfulness. The brand new music with references to Tchaikovsky's original Swan Lake score, is written by New York based Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson, known for his collaboration with Swedish pop artist Lykke Li as well as Nederlands Dance Theater and the Royal Swedish Ballet.

Models adorned with monk-like headpieces and specially made tight fitting neoprene water shoes tread the catwalk, and show a collection that is balanced perfectly between eccentric innovation and wearability.

Silhouettes are round and curved, and divided circles come together to create relaxed summer looks. 
Upper bodies are long and stretched, shorts are classically Vibskov and low-crotched, and trousers are short. Strong orange, white and mint stand out amongst more subtle dark blues and curry shades.
