Danish avant-garde clothing and installation artist Henrik Vibskov has finally hit Manhattan with his first U.S. flagship store. The Central St. Martins College of Art and Design grad will feature his futuristic men’s and women’s threads and accessories in his signature graphic prints ($100–$600) and showcase other labels like Cosmic Wonder, Ally Capellino and Stine Goya. Funky gals will enjoy Vibskov’s silk dresses with shoulder-zipper details and uneven hems ($360), while men can opt for camouflage-print jackets ($264). If the prices are a bit of a stretch but you still crave something cool, check out pixelated-pig-print scarves ($130) and laptop cases ($113). The small boutique, outfitted with industrial materials from Copenhagen, will no doubt attract Vibskov’s big-name fans like La Roux, Kanye West, Jay-Z and M.I.A. But you won’t see this designer on Page Six lollygagging with celebrities—in his spare time, Vibskov constructs mind-boggling art exhibitions for places like the Museum of Modern Art, Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London.
