We imagine when Henrik Vibskov was a kid he took daily trips to remote islands where the wild things are, visited Mr. Ignanomous and his band of renegades or sailed along in a banana boat on a quest for a magical spear. The matured Vibskov retains some of that mystery still, bringing some wild imagery to the catwalk with amazing creations in eccentric prints and vivid story lines. So it's no wonder that he's conjured up a collection for Euro kids accessory line, Quinny, using strange penguin snow suits and rainbow-colored strollers with dangling knocktabobbles. While getting to the bottom of Vibskov's wondrous aesthetics we discovered a story about a young penguin boy that runs off to the forest to join a musical entourage of traveling bandits, a tale beautifully reenacted in the collection's campaign where small flipper-winged children wander the misty forest, and synchronized swimmers balance umbrellas on their tippy toes. Vibskov manages to capture the dark and exciting qualities of childhood not just in the line but in it's presentation, enough so that we're coveting pieces long before our firstborn are even mentally conceived.
