PRESS. INTERVIEW WITH RUNE PARK FOR MOMONDO

In order to get an understanding for that easy-going, unpretentious style Copenhageners are known for, we’ve sat down with Rune Park, Buyer at Henrik Vibskov Boutique.

Rune defines the local style as relaxed and uncomplicated, yet still elegant and sophisticated. “The essence of the local style is elegant yet functional with a twist, as we all need to be able to get around on a bike. One can find everything from contemporary streetwear to avant-garde high fashion and Scandinavian minimalism.”

Copenhageners don’t just follow prescribed fashion trends – they “are very good at lending their own twist to their look with unexpected colours, prints and layers.” Something you’ll see plenty of here are sneakers. “Sneakers have been very popular among the Danes for a while now. The Danish girls were actually among the first ones to wear evening dresses with sneakers.”

Asked where he finds inspiration, Rune talks about his home district of Vesterbro, an area known for its diversity and independent spirit that attracts many artists, designers and other creatives.

Rune Park holds a BA in fashion management and has worked in buying, branding, design, retail and marketing for brands such as Hugo Boss and Armani.

The Henrik Vibskov Boutique, open since 2006, is a multi-brand store carrying brands such as Comme Des Garcons, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Raf Simons, Y-3 as well as a range of other up-and-coming designers and artists.

HENRIK VIBSKOV SS18 "THE GREAT CHAIN OF SLEEPERS" IN PARIS BY VICTOR JONES

Wake up!

When the eyes are closed and the heart beats quickly, the body and mind become disengaged from the surroundings and the breathing becomes more shallow. As we give up our bodies to sleep, sudden twitches escape our brains and we go through a chain of sleep stages. During the last Henrik Vibskov show, a performer fell asleep on stage for a few minutes while the performance took place. Probably a nap was needed but this is what inspired the design team to look into sleeping from different angles. What happens to us when we sleep or don’t sleep? What positions are we lying in when sleeping? Full-length, facing downwards, curled up or on our sides. Do animals, food, plants or clothing ever sleep? People sleep in a variety of locations; some directly on the ground, others on platforms or beds. Some sleep with blankets, others with pillows or simple headrests, some in sleeping bags. The door between the dreamer and the outside world is not completely closed while images, ideas, emotions and sensations occur in the mind during the sleep. Nightmares and dreams can be story-like, flamboyant, illogical, bizarre and downright surreal. Sleeping in unconventional places, insomnia, night visions, monsters under the beds, wrinkled bed sheets and different layers of consciousness have inspired the Vibskov design team for S/S’18.
