Listen up! In the twisted and surreal set-up of Vibskov, deformed yogis are aligned to perform series of synchronized movements in a controlled rusty red temple. This area – between the balanced and unbalanced – is where The Five O’clock Leg Alignment is set to happen.
The mind is filled with noise in today’s fast paced and hectic world where people spend time and effort concentrating on the surface demands. Harmony in the mind and body is the key to ultimate wellness and happiness.
Exercises are expression of play which allow people to go beyond imagination through direct physical activity. Sports tracks with bending graphical lines, mind zones, striped sporting uniforms and games from our childhood have inspired the Vibskov design team for A/W17.
This season the collection has even greater variety in surfaces and materials; bonded wool, coupé-jacquards woven in France, heavy unwashed and washed denim, waxed British cotton, printed plissé, Thermo-coats where the filling is made out of recycled plastic bottles and chunky knitwear produced locally in Denmark.
The eye gets challenged by the round shapes in stripes, partly gathered and frilled or overlapping in different layers. The colours and artworks remind us of painted wooden toys, puzzles and board games from the 60s were monochrome prints were hand-coloured and earth tones dominated the graphics.
