Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov unveiled his Spring Summer 2018 The Great Chain of Sleepers collection, on Saturday June 24th, during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week.
“When the eyes are closed and the heart beats quickly, the body and mind becomes disengaged from the surroundings and the breathing becomes more shallow. As we give up our bodies to sleep, sudden twitches escape our brains and we go through a chain of sleep stages.
The door between the dreamer and the outside world is not completely closed while images, ideas, emotions and sensations occur in the mind during the sleep. Nightmares and dreams can be story-like, flamboyant, illogical, bizarre and downright surreal. Sleeping in unconventional places, insomnia, night visions, monsters under the beds, wrinkled bed sheets and different layers of consciousness have inspired the Vibskov design team for S/S’18.“
