Paris Men’s Week: Henrik Vibskov
If you take your style cues from a German tourist, a ropes course instructor, Wes Anderson’s costume designer and a Scottish Highlander, then Henrik Vibskov’s collection was made for you. We’re talking traditional plaid kilts, gray wool ponchos, thick and colorful weekend-camping socks and roomy ‘70s-style suits. The Dane’s collection seemed to be a play on masculine wilderness types gone inside, and aside from some unfortunate patchwork pants and shorts, it worked. Oversized knits and hooded parkas were tempered with man-skirts and leggings. Then there were the glasses, white frames with elliptical mirrored lenses that looked with something out of a sci-fi B movie.Models wore Waris-style beards (some natural, some glued on) and white swimming caps that looked like shrunken wooden waffles, while their fingers had inexplicably been dipped in white paint in some kind of White Out je ne sais quoi.
