Henrik Vibskov + Dale of Norway
on 14 December 2013
Since its genesis in 1879, clothing brand Dale of Norway has created the highest quality knitwear in the small village of Dale. Responsible for crafting heritage-style sportswear for the Norwegian Olympic teams for years, the local brand has risen to prominence. For AW13, they collaborated with Danish fashion Designer Henrik Vibskov to produce a collection with a strong focus on Nordic materials, handicraft and tradition. The collaboration resulted in a stunning trio of patterns, available in several different clothing styles. This beautifully captured video by Alastair Philip Wiper makes clear that no machines can replace the human touch.
