Henrik Vibskov Creates Collection for Barcelona-based Medwinds
The line is described as representing the “discreet simplicity and helping spirit of the scouts movement.”
“Two sets that reflect the vision of a Mediterranean boy scouts team camping on the beach of Majorca. Linen skirts with pockets and shorts with wrinkly textures, leather sandals and a cotton fabric dress for the girls. Everything has been produced in Spain except for the hats, which have been crafted in Denmark in a traditional hat factory.” ~Henrik Vibskov
About Henrik Vibskov
Like few, Henrik embodies the profile of a versatile creator, opening 360 degrees as a multitalented professional extraordinarily qualified for a seemingly endless list: Fashion designer, drummer for the Danish dj & composer of electronic music Anders Trentemoller, Conceptual artist, scenographer, costume creator for plays and opera, and former break dance performer.
Graduating from Central Saint Martins College in London of 2001 his provocative spirit has since been a media magnet coupled with his relentless artistic production. The expansion of his brand has done nothing but increase his recognition as a cult figure within the triple international scene of music, art
& fashion: exhibitions at the MoMA and the most prestigious galleries; fans of his clothes include Lou Reed, Arctic Monkeys and Björk, amongst other celebrities; he is the only Scandinavian with a runway show in Paris Fashion Week. Ideas are free, intangible, limitless, born with no preconceived materials,
we only need to find the most suitable artistic platform to express them – states Vibskov. There is a first time for everything; and his project On the Beach is recorded as the first time collaboration for Medwinds. For the launch in a Majorca beach, Vibskov has designed and crafted a tent with room for the local Scout Brotherhood. Opposite to their practical nature, the tent is rather an unpractical sculpture that adds a surreal dreamy shadow to the presentation of the mini collection presented by Vibskov, mixing live on the beach while local boy and girl scouts are performing.
