Henrik Vibskov Menswear Fall Winter 2012 Paris

Interview: Henrik Vibskov’s show took place in what seemed to be the inside of a giant drum kit. A mix of loose riding pants, 1920s cloche-hat inspired headpieces with ears cut out, and socks worn on shoes confirmed the kooky Henrik we all know. But cable sweaters in speckled wool and dark frock coats and sensible cardigans brought a novel air of maturity.

NOWFASHION spoke to Henrik seconds after the show about his coming of age.

So what are we seeing today?

Well, we have hats with fadings, socks with straws that kept falling of – but that’s how it goes. Lots of knitwear, low caps, and drums packed in white.

Do you sense a certain evolution in your clothes, your brand?

I don’t know, but it seems there were a lot of people tonight, so we’re hopefully going the right direction. It’s also my tenth anniversary showing in Paris.

People often call you eccentric, do you feel that way?

Maybe I am? I’m pretty loose. I like to create worlds and look into different colors every time.

The palette was rather controlled this time though…

Yes, I counted how many colors I used for the show and tried to do less of that – white is they keyword.
