THE GREAT CHAIN OF SLEEPERS ~ HENRIK VIBSKOV'S SHOW by OSTI.CO


Into the show of Henrik Vibskov.
We & Osti.co were in Copenhagen last fashion week,
we met and talk about the power of the instant communication and our thought about the importance of being a collective.
We'd like to share with you our point of view about the fashion show after a few weeks.
During the last Henrik Vibskov show, a performer fell asleep on stage for a few minutes while the performance took place. Probably a nap was needed but this is what inspired the design team to look into sleeping from different angles. What happens to us when we sleep or don't sleep?
What positions are we lying in when sleeping? Full-length, facing downwards, curled up or on our sides. Do animals, food, plants or clothing ever sleep? People sleep in a variety of locations; some directly on the ground, others on platforms or beds. Some sleep with blankets, others with pillows or simple headrests, some in sleeping bags.
The door between the dreamer and the outside world is not completely closed while images, ideas, emotions and sensations occur in the mind during the sleep. Nightmares and dreams can be story-like, flamboyant, illogical, bizarreand downright surreal. Sleeping in unconventional places, insomnia, night visions, monsters under the beds, wrinkled bed sheets and diferrent layers of consciousness have inspired the Vibskov design team for ss18.
