How do you get from uncooked pasta to avant-garde ready-to-wear? In the mind of Henrik Vibskov, the line is shorter than you might think. As usual, the singular Dane on the Paris catwalks has a slew of inspirations that manage to coalesce in his fall collection, “The Spaghetti Handjob”.
Named for the position of your hand when you hold pasta before dropping it into water, the collection uses that crucial moment—when stiff, rigid dried goods magically transform into loose, luxuriant noodles—to juxtapose hard and soft against each other. Vibskov goes even further, drawing on the wild shapes of beehives and anthills to produce maddeningly complex prints and shapes. Colors are lifted right out of the kitchen as well as the wilderness, with curry orange sitting right alongside pale ice blue.
The first pieces from our fall selection are available now in-store and will be online shortly.
