In the CPHmade network we’re blessed with all sorts of talent, spread out on a wide range of proud craftsmen. The talent these craftsmen are representing has led them to produce exciting products and participate in quirky and interesting collaborations. In the forthcoming weeks, we’ll look into some of these collaborations, where CPHmade members have been involved.
This week we’ve kept our eyes peeled on 3 local craftsmen who all have been creatively involved with one of the most acknowledged and awarded Danish designers.
Known for collections like “The Land of the Black Carrots”, “Big Wet Shiny Boobies” and “The Human Laundry Service”, Mr. Vibskov has been known for his sharp attention to details and craftsmanship for over a decade now, and is definitely one of the best-known Danish designers around the globe.
He is probably one of the best-known designers on the Danish fashion and art scene. Known for his unique, sculptural and avant-gardistic approach to art and fashion, Mr. Henrik Vibskov has produced more than twenty (!) collections for men, since he graduated from the renowned art-collage Central Saint Martins in 2001. His clothes and art installations are exhibited and distributed in thoroughly selected stores and galleries around the globe.
Mr. Henrik Vibskov’s unique style and quirky mindset has gained great, international recognition and today, Henrik Vibskov is the only Scandinavian designer represented at Men’s Fashion Week in the fashion capital, Paris.
His shows are notoriously known to be quite a different experience, than you’d usually expect from a fashion show, presenting the audience with an explosion of colors, asymmetrical objects and quirky show pieces.
As it turns out, some of the members the CPHmade network have contributed to Mr. Vibskov’s unique universe, and we’re about to reveal whom.
The talented Ms. Emdal has helped out Henrik Vibskov numerous times. Her signature, the ultra fine knitting of the finest wool materials have contributed to a strong definition and profiling of Mr. Vibskov’s vibrant knit designs.
Ms. Emdal herself is also well known for working with a quite colorful palette in her fantastic knit designs.
PSST. If you like the works of Emdal Colorknt, we actually just managed to get our hands on some of Emdal Colorknit’s eye-catching scarves. Hurry up, and get yours while they’re still available in our Emdal Colorknit Section of our Web-shop.
Andersen & Berner
The proud hatter, Mr. Stig Andersen, is usually known to be quite a busy man during fashion week, and on several occasions, Mr. Stig Andersen has helped Mr. Vibskov on crafting unique showpieces for his collections, and this summer’s Copenhagen Fashion Week was no different, and you can see some Mr. Vibskov’s designs hand crafted by Andersen & Berner.
The quite quirky, unusual and eye-catching hats are crafted from the proudest traditions of craftsmanship. If you don’t quite find the hats matching your particular taste, may we suggest that you sneaked a peek in our web-shop, where you can find a more “ordinary” selection, and Buy Andersen & Berner Hats.
Mr.diverse mana man of many talents, and besides fashion he is also strongly involved in art. He has been involved in several art projects, i.e. The Fringe Project, which he established in collaboration with the artist Andreas Emenius.
His approach to art is synonymous with his approach to fashion; quirky, sculpturous.
In one of his art exhbitions, Basic Instincts, our good friends from WoodCouture helped out Mr. Vibskov by doing what they do best: creating astonishing shapes and silhouettes in all sorts of wood.
