Strong patterns and graphics, a staple in the Danish designers past collections come alive once again in the SS14 collection Vibskov presented in Paris a few days ago. The presentation was almost art-like with a sweeping backdrop. The pieces were bright in mixes of primary colors and bleeding paint palettes. As the press release states, the collections visuals “takes us into a world inspired by visual disorders and dysfunctions.” We couldn’t agree more–we see red and light green dots, overly big and knitted patterns, enlarged herringbone on linen and overlapping patchworks of colors.
Vibskov was clearly influenced by the idea of optical illusions as this is a collection of disproportioned shapes, patterns and shirts with 3D landscapes. While the outfits were loud and smashing each singular piece is completely wearable and beautiful.
