In an enchanting fusion of creativity and artistry, Henrik Vibskov and his team present an extraordinary Spring/Summer 2024 Studio collection, paying tribute to the ubiquitous box. This season, the Danish designer draws inspiration from the concept of “unboxing” to create a captivating narrative that weaves the allure of carefully packaged goods, the excitement of sending and receiving packages, and the symbolism of the boxes that shape our lives. The result? An exquisite and immersive experience known as the “Unboxing Waltz.”
The Symbolism of Boxing
The collection finds its muse in the aesthetics of boxing, seamlessly intertwining this sport’s imagery with the act of unboxing. As an unconscious reflex, the human mind categorises and sorts our surroundings, and the theme of unboxing physical parcels and the symbolic boxes we inhabit comes alive within the iconic features of a boxing ring.

Embodying the essence of the “Unboxing Waltz,” each garment exudes a unique and thought-provoking charm. Dresses and shirts surprise with front-to-back reversibility, echoing the excitement of opening an unexpected delivery. Garments feature playful details, mimicking the shape of box handles, and textured textiles reminiscent of bubble wrap, contrasting with structured, boxy styles. Woven textiles allude to the feeling of being “in transit” and “out for delivery,” while prints showcase flattened, unfolded boxes, dynamic collages of boxing rings, and boxing glove flowers—challenging conventional norms with a touch of serenity.
Henrik Vibskov’s Eco-Conscious Elegance
An exciting collaboration with jewellery designer Vibe Harsløf elevates the collection to new heights with exquisite silver showpieces and accessories. Handcrafted silver birds and bandaids find form as pendant earrings, necklaces, and nose pieces, while headpieces adorned with cartoonish birds circling a knocked-out head add a playful yet profound touch.
