The Henrik Vibskov SS11 collection is set in a universe dominated by a dramatic, yet unknown occurrence that has just taken place – a post-apocalyptic atmosphere. The shapes of micro organisms, lifeboats, mushrooms, minerals, sea-life, genitals and so on have been the inspiration behind the graphics and silhouette of this collection. The general vibe is dark, but with a built-in optimism that lies in the micro-organic life and the efforts to re-establish what has been broken.
The people dressed for this occasion are strong but humble; the fit of the clothes is tight and gentlemanly, welcoming yet protective. These surviving gentlemen carry emergency flutes, a jar, rope and binoculars amongst them. One will find a passing stream of pictures referring to survival. The certain elements shown in a good old Henrik Vibskov stew of objects and symbols that mixes together into a final language. References to military, tribesmen or outdoor equipment aesthetics are a part of the vocabulary.
