People say that Danish designer, musician, and artist Henrik Vibskov applied to notorious fashion school Central St. Martins because he was in love. We can only thank God that his design career has far exceeded his adolescent crush, as he now figures as the absolute biggest vanguard talent within our native borders. In the past two decades, Vibskov has created over 30 collections for both genders, and has championed the realms of dance, music, theatre, and performance with his idiosyncratic and conceptual vision. His career as an artist has resulted in several solo shows at some of the most established exhibition spaces in the country, and he is the only Scandinavian member of the French Chambre Syndicale de la Mode Masculine. His year-long love affair with Paris will manifest next month in a spectacular retrospective at the Maison du Danemark, as the Danish cultural center gives carte blanche to the visionaire to look back at his practice across all media. From mint forests to boob seas, undoubtedly, it will be an installation cosmological in nature – so don’t miss, should you be in the city of love.
