HENRIK VIBSKOV – THE JAW NUTS PIECE – MEN’S AW16
Few days ago, there was Henrik Vibskov menswear fashion show for the next winter 2016 : THE JAW NUTS PIECE.
Maison de la Chimie, in Paris, was full of nutcrackers with articulated mouths which moved in a mechanically way on a techno song. It was a real paradox between playground and agonizing ambiance.
The collection is a rebellion against the society through a critic of globalization and propaganda which bring to mechanical behaviors like wooden heads.
With graphisms, lively or dark colors echoing 50s, plastics, bi-colour wool with an italian style, 3D mesh or wood inserts, the designer transcribes his message to the world by prints and looks.
They look like traditional nutcrackers which mission was to provide security in the house.
