Mannequins Product Line CHRISTIAN
A mannequin of our time
He radiates masculine sensuality. You are fixed by his eyes, yet you detect a trace of vulnerability. You admire his slim silhouette, but are taken by his powerful build. His name is Christian. He is the latest in a line of successes that have propelled Hindsgaul back among the leaders in the international display arena.
The new series, simply called “Christian”, is the result of hundreds of hours of work. Christian Hald Nielsen posed for hours on end in a number of sessions while Hindsgaul’s sculptor, Kaj Berg, meticulously measured him up and took hundreds of pictures. Kaj Berg then went on to produce a long line of prototypes for the new mannequin series.
A mannequin acts as a mirror for the shopper, showing the garments at their best without itself being too conspicuous. But it should also encourage dreams. So why not use a face and a body that are already familiar in the world of fashion?
Christian Hald Nielsen is as Danish as they come and known all over the world from numerous front covers in leading magazines such as Man: and advertisements for global brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, Dior, Prada and Jean-Paul Gaultier and latest H&M.
