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.
