Discover Henrik Vibskov‘s Spring Summer 2019 Due to Sudden Weather Change Collection presented on Saturday June 23rd, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week. The collection was was inspired the wind – the way mankind is depending and using the wind as a tool for transport, energy or play, and the way it can be our friend but also our enemy.
“One can’t see the wind but how it shapes and changes things on its way forward. We measure the force of wind by visual clues from land and the sea. Wind can shape landforms and things, like dust, can travel thousands of miles. Wind powers the voyages of sailing ships across the oceans and provides a power source for mechanical work, electricity and recreation.
The collection reflects the theme in various ways; the silhouettes are inspired by the movement of garments that are caught by the wind. Foamy waves, soap bubbles, playful paper planes, boomerangs, parachutes, aerodynamics and even bad breath were keywords during the collection development. Performers, better called the VIBS Air Repair Service, in dusty tea-colored working outfits are controlling manually the mechanical wind turbines. The installation is created by using the recycled old sheets from a laundry service and colored with black-tea. Through rhythm, sound, body movement and pulse the installation emphasizes the inspiration of the collection. It is a visualization on how people can work with the wind instead of against it.“
