HENRIK VIBSKOV’s Spring Summer 2018 collection “The Great Chain of Sleepers”

Wake up!

W

hen the eyes are closed and the heart beats quickly, the body and mind becomes disengaged from the surroundings and the breathing becomes more shallow. As we give up our bodies to sleep, sudden twitches escape our brains and we go through a chain of sleep stages.

During the last Henrik Vibskov show, a performer fell asleep on stage for a few minutes while the performance took place. Probably a nap was needed but this is what inspired the design team to look into sleeping from different angles. What happens to us when we sleep or don’t sleep? What positions are we lying in when sleeping? Full-length, facing downwards, curled up or on our sides. Do animals, food, plants or clothing ever sleep? People sleep in a variety of locations; some directly on the ground, others on platforms or beds. Some sleep with blankets, others with pillows or simple headrests, some in sleeping bags.

The door between the dreamer and the outside world is not completely closed while images, ideas, emotions and sensations occur in the mind during the sleep. Nightmares and dreams can be story-like, flamboyant, illogical, bizarre and downright surreal. Sleeping in unconventional places, insomnia, night visions, monsters under the beds, wrinkled bed sheets and different layers of consciousness have inspired the Vibskov design team for S/S’18.

 Colorful, fun’tastic and very cool were the looks designed by HENRIK VIBSKOV.  As usual, the runway was a source of inspiration for all fashion afficionados and fashionistas.
