Henrik Vibskov Interview [with Trentmoller at Roskilde Festival]
Mastermind designer Henrik Vibskov creates sculptural garments inside a sphere of intergalactic worlds, parallel to no other, so it was of no surprise to find he had enlisted musician and friend Trentmoller to lend creative spirit. Together they created a live show of audio-visual pleasure for the most recent Roskilde Festival, where Henrik Vibskov supplied the outer wear for performers who shared the stage with musical power Trentmoller, in turn the duo were gifted with the energy of 60,000 fans, something Vibskov says is the biggest reward any creator can receive.
How would you describe your work?
I merge all I see around me and boil them down to the ideas that frame my collections. In that sense, my design is very personal. It’s not so much about the looks or image.
What are the philosophies behind your work? What are the things that are important to you that you try to interweave into your designing?
I never do concept collections, deliberately not. I try to let it grow organically. I have been playing drums since an early age and love the feeling of free-styling in jazz music. I love to experience that feeling while designing as well. I keep everything open to the very last minute. I can only work like that.
