Previously inspired by scenes in the kitchen and bedroom, this season, Henrik Vibskov’s inspiration revolved around the bathroom and the rituals associated with bathing. The collection reflected mental and physical preparation ahead of the day. Influenced by vintage bathrooms, colours, combs, mirrors, soap bubbles, toilet papers and toothbrushes, the installation took viewers to the surreal bathhouse of organically-shaped bathtubs with performers lying inside looking in the mirrors and reading the newspapers. The sound of water, tranquillity, freshness, cleanness and the process of physical and mental purification were the themes of the show.
When models walked down the runway, the music was suddenly cut by the fire alarm. The guests took it as a part of the performance, but soon enough, they were asked to leave the building immediately. Some instantly left the venue while others waited outside to see if the show would continue. When the firemen arrived, the alarm appeared to be false, so we were invited back in the building. The show continued and, as expected, the collection was astonishing. With his experimental, artistic and playful approach towards fashion, Henrik proved once again that his imagination has no boundaries.
