Employment, albeit for store credit not hard cash. Who’d have thought it? Yes, I’ve managed to wangle a few days work in Dublin’s Circus Store, the delightful emporium featured here a while back, and seeing as it’s sale season the v. generous Aisling, Damien and Fiona are offering 40% off deliciously zany Henrik Vibskov stock. Nice one re: the store credit, then.

So having spent hours gazing at Africa pants I was reminded of Vibskov’s SS10 show which took place last night in Paris. It seems this financial meltdown has been on Vibskov’s mind too, the collection was decidedly safe with no outstanding deviation from previous seasons. Considering the economic climate, though, it’s surely a sound decision not to engage in a search for the next short-lived trend but rather to innovate within one’s own aesthetic boundaries.

Vibskov did it brilliantly. More of the loopy prints and loose shapes but the collection, for me, was a much more wearable rendition of his previous work. Shorts galore, samurai-inspired outerwear and a healthy dose of polka-dots. Headwear was as outré as ever, just watch you don’t poke eyes out.

PS. Those tasselled all-in-ones. Phwoar.
