Danish designer Henrik Vibskov seems to be an example of the increasingly visible trend amongst fashion designers refusing to put all their eggs in one basket. Not content with sending his quirky collections down the catwalk in Paris, Vibskov undertakes numerous exhibition projects that could see him producing anything from graphic design to monumental performances spectacles. Not to mention that Vibskov – a drummer too seemingly- enjoys working on music projects; projects that have already seen him collaborate with the likes of Anders Trentemøller and Mikael Simpson
Vibskov’s recent exhibition of graphic works at Berlin’s Pool Gallery is hardly his debut in the area of exhibiting art works. Projects of his have already been shown at prestigious institutions: PS1, MoMA, NYC and Palais de Tokio, Paris. In 2009 his massive project for Mu in Eindhoven proved particularly popular with visitors.
For those who make a visit to Copenhagen it’s worth mentioning that Vibskov’s flagship store in the city centre is well worth the visit. The low ceilings of the modestly-scaled shop are entirely accentuated to create a trippy rustic feel with interesting clothing on sale not only by Vibskov himself, but a range of interesting international designers. And for those who can’t make it to Denmark, it’s equally worth visiting the various sites that document Mister Vibskov’s full range of creative activities.
