It’s been 20 years since the danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov left Central saint Martins to start his own brand, and this year it’s celebrated with a cake collection. The men’s A/W 2021 collection was shown during the digital Paris fashion week. The collection is inspired by the different colors, textures and shapes of cake as well as tablecloths, baking tools and pastry chefs. In the collection we see creamy pastels, large checked patterns and playful colors that mirror the theme.
Other than the show the collection is portrayed in “The collection video”. The video presents a set with green gel cakes in a surrealistic baking factory, all in a fantasy world on napkin-trees and laser gel pearls. The video ends with the models celebrating with green jello cakes and green drinks at a large table showing the inspiration for the collection: cake and how it’s connected to celebration.
All fabrics for the collection have been chosen based on their sustainable qualities. The garments are made from organic and or upcycled cotton, recycled polyester and PET bottles, tencel made from upcycled cotton and cellulose fibres and European linen and virgin wool. The set for the collection video was made of the material from an old set to minimize the usage of new material and environmental impact.
