Henrik Vibskov, the only Scandinavian designer in the official show schedule of the Paris men's Fashion Week, chose to work with a tableau vivant instead of a runway show. A great choice if you'd ask us, because the atmosphere was uncanny!
Few people were allowed in the space at the same time. This personal connection with the models and the clothes, together with the music, created a kind of special ambience that we liked a lot. The presentation is an art installation which has become typical for this brand: the presentation has become as important as the collection itself. This time, the concept was called “The Bathtub Observer”.
They all had the same shoes on and the same headpiece, which were both very unique. The clothes were very colourful with a lot of unique, eye-popping prints and patterns. The dots and distorted moiré prints from previous collections were kept for this one. The cubistic motives were new and herringbone patterns were reinvented! Colours include white, light beige, black, shades of blue, mustard yellow, camel, light green and red.
The shoes looked so uncomfortable and some models looked really tired. We asked someone of the staff for how long they had to stand like this. The presentation took 1 hour, but she told us that they could rest and drink water whenever they wanted.
The model in the last picture, a very popular model this season (we saw him at many different shows), looks really epic in the outfit he had on!
