Henrik Vibskov is a fashion designer, artist and musician. His fashion shows are legendary.
We’ve already seen his Spring/Summer 2013 collection during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, and yet in Copenhagen, the homeland of fantasists’ Vibskov, his shows are something different.
They are “the highlight” of a fashion week. Vibskov also has more possibilities to let his imagination run wild. Location for his show was the Kunsthalle Charlottenburg, the largest gallery of progressive art in Copenhagen.
At the beginning of the show, a pink tube was unfurled on the catwalk to release from within figures of the same color, that made their way from the bright fabric with black spots. The theme of “dots and spaces” was found in his designs again: round cut-outs on shorts and pants, and dots Vibskov printed on his creations.
ALEXANDER WANG is daring to touch another, more peripheral, fashion-issue after the H&M-cooperation: Interior.
He designed a ‘Bean Bag Chair’ for the Italian label Poltrona Frau and a booze-case – or rather wrapped it with black leather.
For 8.800,- dollars you can buy the luxurious bean bag, for 18.500,- dollar the box. One can only hope, that Wang used his own ball-skin for the pieces, considering the price. Everything else would be: rude.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
