HENRIK VIBSKOV - Salami Kitchen of the Nonexistent

Henrik Vibskov nailed it again with his latest creative and breathtaking Salami Kitchen of the Nonexistent SS17 fashion show.

 

A massive 20 meters long structure standing as a central piece, with large piles of salamis hanging from it, creating an eccentric frame for the catwalk. The atmosphere is rainy dark and gloomy. In the installation, 4 heavyweight butchers operate a factory making salamis. Estimating the maturity of salamis, wiping greasy hands on their aprons.

Meat and savoring meat is the core of the Vibskov's show. The hedonistic ideas of joy and delectation contrast with the beautiful precision of the martial arts, producing crisp, obi-belted dresses (Obi is sash for traditional uniforms for Japanese martial arts) and poplin shirting.

Roots of this meaty motiv can be hidden in Vibskov's origin as a countryside boy raised in a village in the country which is one of the world’s largest pig meat exporters, evidence of which is reflected across his work.

Funny fact, there was a little merch sale after the show, where you could buy an organic sausages made from happy Danish pigs, and you get another one too - the plush one, identical with those ones used in the catwalk installation. Not a bad idea, I guess :)

How do you like the collection and the show?

Although being a veggie, I liked it very much, as I always do like Vibskov's work. Most of all, the guilted white bomber and bold knits, which remain as strong a category for Vibskov as ever.

CPHFW SS16: Street style

I was very curious to see street style during the Copenhagen fashion week. You know, when average people here are dressed like czechoslovak most famous bloggers, how will the danish fashionables look like??
Well..it's more colorful! People are wearing strange accesories, play more with the fashion. And what  I like the most..are fashionable experienced ladies/gentlemen. As I wrote HERE, I really like how they have their own unique style and they're not afraid of wearing colours.




CPHFW SS16 : Nicholas Nybro

The next fashion show I attended during the Copenhagen fashion week, was the show of Nicholas Nybro. It was split into two parts, and I really enjoyed especially the 'pyjamas' part. I love long comfy shirts, dresses and everything that looks like a home clothing. I would wear it all day long, if I could ♥

And here is more about Nicholas Nybro from CPHFW official web:

Nicholas Nybro is a Copenhagen based fashion brand. With several collections under his belt and employment with Moonspoon Saloon, he launched his brand Nicholas Nybro in early 2011.

Nicholas Nybro specializes in conceptual clothing, costumes and art direction. His designs are characterized by a humoristic and unpretentious approach towards fashion, but without compromise in material or craftsmanship. The collections have varied over clothing and lately hats and bags have been added to the collections. 

SQ1 is part one of two collections that both take its inspiration from H. C. Andersen's renowned fairy tale, The Snow Queen, which is Nicholas Nybros favourite fairy tale. In SQ1 the setting is childhood and summer, thoughts of bees and harvest time.



CPHFW SS16 : Henrik Vibskov

My first season of Copenhagen fashion week is just over. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to attend it as a part of Fashion Map team! I'll do a small recap of my impressions from the fashion week and also from Copenhagen soon, so stay tuned!

But now let's have a look at the first, and the most A-M-A-Z-I-N-G fashion show, the Henrik Vibskov's one.

Honestly. I really like fashion shows for their atmosphere from scene to music, artistic impression, rush and excitement before the show and joy after it's over. But Henrik's collection The Hot Spray Escape was just amazing. I love those hats, skirts and patterns. These are definitely my cup of tea and I'm starting to save my money for (at least) one gorgeous masterpiece from this collection.

And what about you guys, what do you think about The Hot Spray Escape collection?
