there's always a sense of discovery and fun at henrik vibskov's shows. referencing exotic cultures, blending in experimental elements yet never fully abandoning the classic men's silhouette, the danish designer always pulls it off. his s/s 2014 men's collection is no exception. called the bathtub observer, it's inspired by world of visual disorders and dysfunctions. strong graphics are an important element: indian cotton with hand-printed dots, big knitted patterns, magnified herringbone on neoprene and linen, and patchworks of materials and colours make appearances in beautifully dysfunctional arrangements. the palette includes white, light-beige, black, shades of blue, mustard yellow, camel, light green and red dots. the silhouettes are overly proportioned while oversized constructions play with the layers of the garments, adding all up to a fresh and playful range of designs. shown here are five looks from henrik vibskov's s/s 2014 men's collection that we particularly like.
