This will probably strike most as an unlikely collaboration.
Danish avant garde designer Henrik Vibskov and
sleek pram company Quinny pairing up to come up with a line of 15 items
that all gives Vibskov the chance to put his crazy printed spin on
Quinny classics such as the Buzz pushchair, Dreami Pram Body and the
Zapp buggy. A toy string hangs with dangling drumsticks and maracas and
bells. In addition to these baby-specific products is also a printed
rain poncho that will be of interest to fans of Vibskov's signature
prints, with or without a baby. Vibskov envisioned a remote forest, far
away from civilisation where colourful misfits congregrate, who then
start playing music that becomes popular. From this
backstory, three prints were derived; Mad, Rainbow and Raindrop print
which is then contrasted with leather accents and base colours of ecru
and black and worked in various ways on the different Quinny products.
In some ways, the collaboration makes sense as Vibskov has always taken
a wide-eyed approach to his collections, often taking inspiration from
the imaginations of a child.
