Next LVMH Prize Winner Is Probably Famous Already on Instagram

PARIS — When the semifinalists for the LVMH Prize for Young Designers gather at the luxury conglomerate’s headquarters later this month to show their collections to a panel of industry experts, many of them will have Instagram to thank for the career-making opportunity.
The list of 20 semifinalists unveiled today includes many brands that owe their burgeoning notoriety to social media and influencers, always on the search for hot new labels. Among them, Tomo Koizumi, Rave Review, Helmstedt, Chopova Lowena and Peter Do have all leveraged the Internet in different ways.
Koizumi is perhaps the most famous example: after Vogue talent scout Sara Maino posted one of his colorful, oversize ruffled designs on Instagram in October 2018, things quickly snowballed. Giles Deacon and Gwendoline Christie flagged it to stylist Katie Grand, who brought him to New York to make his debut.
“She DMed me less than a month before my first show,” Koizumi said of the display, held at the Marc Jacobs store on Madison Avenue last February with models including Karen Elson, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Rowan Blanchard and Christie. The images promptly went viral.
Koizumi, who makes only custom dresses, has since seen his designs worn by the likes of Miley Cyrus

EXCLUSIVE: LVMH to Establish Karl Lagerfeld Fashion Prize

His legendary fashion career was ignited by an award. In his twilight years, he acted as a judge for the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers, leaving most contenders starstruck.
And now he will be immortalized with a fashion prize in his name. LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton confirmed exclusively to WWD that its Special Prize will henceforth 
be named the Karl Lagerfeld Prize.
The first one is to be presented during the sixth edition of the contest on Sept. 4 at the Fondation Louis Vuitton.
“Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of the house of Fendi since 1965, 
was involved in the prize since its launch,” said Delphine Arnault, the force behind the high-profile design competition. “He was fully committed to it since Day One, 
transporting us with his enthusiasm and his energy, sharing with everyone, whether other jury members or candidates, his culture and his passion for fashion. We shall always cherish those precious moments.”
A key talent scout at the French luxury conglomerate and the number-two executive at its flagship Louis Vuitton brand, Arnault added that the Karl Lagerfeld Prize “naturally perpetuates the closeness we developed 
over the years and is a tribute to the man’s unique creative genius, to his ability to

LVMH Postpones Designer Prize Final Until September

WAITING TO EXHALE: The eight finalists for the LVMH Prize for Young Designers will have to hold their breath for a few months longer: the finals of the competition, traditionally held in June, has been postponed until Sept. 4, the group said Wednesday.
LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the luxury conglomerate which holds the annual prize, did not provide a reason for the delay, but a source familiar with the situation cited calendar conflicts among some of the senior executives and designers expected to attend the prize-giving ceremony.
Last year’s event took place on June 6 in the presence of Emma Stone and Jaden Smith, both Louis Vuitton brand ambassadors. Japanese designer Masayuki Ino won the main prize with his streetwear label Doublet, while the runner-up special prize went to South Korean designer Rok Hwang’s London-based women’s wear label Rokh.

Among those competing for this year’s grand prize of 300,000 euros, plus a year of coaching from experts at family-controlled LVMH — the parent of brands including Louis Vuitton, Dior and Fendi — are four labels making gender-neutral clothes, two women’s wear designers and two men’s wear designers.

EXCLUSIVE: ANDAM Announces Prize Finalists

PARIS — Coperni, Hed Mayner, Koché and Kwaidan Editions are this year’s finalists for the French fashion prize ANDAM, worth 250,000 euros.
“This year’s selection of Andam finalists was particularly diverse and interesting,” noted Renzo Rosso, head of Italian fashion group OTB, owner of Maison Margiela, who is this year’s mentor to the prize winner. Rosso noted the selection was not linked to a single market trend or “too business driven.”
Coperni, founded by Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant, was a finalist for an ANDAM prize in 2014. The designers went on to become artistic directors of Courrèges until 2017 and relaunched their brand earlier this year, taking to the catwalk for Paris Fashion Week in February.
Israeli designer Hed Mayner also showed his men’s wear collection in Paris in February, playing on bulk and layering in neutral tones. Koché, Christelle Kocher’s upscale ready-to-wear label with streetwear and contemporary art references, was featured in WWD’s feature “Ten of Tomorrow in 2016.”
Léa Dickely and Hung La are the design duo behind Kwaidan Editions, a finalist for the LVMH prize last year.

LVMH Prize Finalists Include Two African Designers

PARIS — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has unveiled the names of the eight finalists for the LVMH Prize for Young Designers, and for the first time, designers from Nigeria, South Africa and Israel have made the final round of the competition.
“We are very proud of the international dimension of the prize. It’s really what sets it apart,” Delphine Arnault, the force behind the initiative, told WWD. “The LVMH Prize is global. It reflects the fact that fashion is now a global market, with a capacity to reach and to touch more and more people, namely thanks to the Internet.”
Among those competing for a grand prize of 300,000 euros, plus a year of coaching from experts at family-controlled LVMH — the parent of brands including Louis Vuitton, Dior and Fendi — are four labels making gender-neutral clothes, two women’s wear designers and two men’s wear designers.
“Gender issues, and the question of women’s place in society are key concerns for young people today, I believe. It’s normal therefore for designers to seize on those topics, which inform their designs,” said Arnault, who is a key talent scout at the French luxury conglomerate.

Edward Crutchley and Colovos Win Woolmark Prize

LONDON — Edward Crutchley and Colovos have been named the winners of this year’s International Woolmark Prize.
A panel of judges, which included designer Alber Elbaz, InStyle editor in chief Laura Brown and actor Gwendoline Christie, chose the winners from among 12 finalists.
Colovos won in the women’s wear category and Crutchley won for men’s wear as well as the Innovation award. The winners were announced during London Fashion Week.
The competition recognizes design talent that uses Australian Merino wool in beautiful and creative ways. Previous winners include Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent.
“I think for someone who is so focused on textiles, it’s really a validation for me that what I do is of value, and I think that’s something that we all look for in our work,” said Crutchley, who is known for working with artisanal textiles.
For the collection that he presented to the panel, Crutchley said he wanted to set himself a challenge by creating pieces using 100 percent merino wool. “No blends, no mixes and to achieve as many different levels of texture, weights, and drapes as I could,” he said.
Looks ranged from devorée pieces and intricate jacquards to tie-dyes.
Crutchley and Nicole and Michael Colovos of Colovos are awarded 200,000 Australian dollars,

Former United Nations Chief & Nobel Peace Prize Winner Kofi Annan Has Died

Kofi Annan visits the Netherlands

Source: Mischa Schoemaker/WENN.com / WENN

Former United Nations leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner Kofi Annan has died. The Ghanian national served as the UN chief from 1997 to 2006 and later worked on efforts to bring peace to Syria and the surrounding region.

From the Kofi Annan Foundation:

It is with immense sadness that the Annan family and the Kofi Annan Foundation announce that Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Laureate, passed away peacefully on Saturday 18th August after a short illness. His wife Nane and their children Ama, Kojo and Nina were by his side during his last days.

Kofi Annan was a global statesman and a deeply committed internationalist who fought throughout his life for a fairer and more peaceful world. During his distinguished career and leadership of the United Nations he was an ardent champion of peace, sustainable development, human rights and the rule of law.

After stepping down from the United Nations, he continued to work tirelessly in the cause of peace through his chairmanship of the Kofi Annan Foundation and as chair of The Elders, the group founded by Nelson Mandela. He was an inspiration to young and old alike.

Annan, along with the UN, won the Nobel for humanitarian work in 2001 and that mission remained with him for the rest of his career.

His passion for the development of Ghana and other African nations extended beyond his time as a special envoy for the UN in Syria, and he was involved with a number of organizations covering climate concerns while remaining, as his foundation stated in their loving tribute, a “global statesman” of high regard.

Annan was 80.

Eco-Friendly Peggy Sue Collection Wins Canadian Prize

SEEING GREEN: Fledgling Canadian designer Peggy Sue Deaven-Smiltnieks and her sumptuous, farm-to-fashion fabrications emerged victorious at Toronto’s Design Exchange on Tuesday, beating a long list of cross-disciplinary contenders to win this museum’s Emerging Designer Award for 2017, which is worth 10,000 Canadian dollars.
“Males in the past have won this award, so it’s great that a fashion designer — and a woman — won this year,” said Deaven-Smiltnieks, who defeated architects, graphic designers, as well as furniture, interior and industrial designers to nab the prize and the chance to have her own Design Exchange exhibition, running from Wednesday to Feb. 16, 2018.
Calling the win “hugely validating,” the Toronto designer, who trained at Rhode Island’s School of Design, works directly with farmers, start-up mills and artisans to design her sustainable clothing.
This year’s judging panel included Burdifilek cofounders Diego Burdi and Paul Filek; architect Omar Gandhi; Concrete chief executive officer and graphic designer Diti Katona, and Saks Fifth Avenue Canada’s marketing director Shayne Stephens.
“If we’re talking about the future of fashion, Peggy Sue is going the right way,” said Nina Boccia, design exchange director of programs. “Her dedication to sustainability and garment construction set her apart. But it was also about the way

Sara Lundberg Scoops Designers’ Nest Prize at Copenhagen Fashion Week

ROYAL PRIZE: Crown Princess Mary of Denmark wearing Danish label Fonnesbech presented Sara Lundberg with the Designers’ Nest prize.
The talent show and award organized by trade fair Revolver was held Friday afternoon during Copenhagen Fashion Week.
A jury that included London-based designer Peter Jensen, Eyes on Talents’ cofounder Guillaume de Piédoüe and fashion scholar Ane Lunge Jorlen selected the 28-year-old Swedish designer as the winner of the competition.
“She expressed the way we convey emotions today is through emojis, and how fashion has become a new community,” Lunge Jorlen explained.
“Her statement was very strong: fashion turned into a totem, a sculpture,” de Piédoüe said. The co-founder of the online platform for connecting brands with international design talents sees a “good combination of technical skills and creativity among Scandinavian designers.”
Lundberg, who just graduated from at the Swedish Schools of Textiles and cites Rei Kawakubo among her favorite designers, is to start a PhD in fashion design in Vilnius, Lithuania  this fall. “I want to discuss things, and continue to do projects about humanity,” she told WWD.
Lundberg was one of 24 students from eight schools in Nordic countries competing for the prize, valued at 50,000 Danish kroner, or $ 7,310 at current exchange.

He needs a wife…  Single bodyguard Nick Calhoun has been given an ultimatum by his boss—find a wife or lose his cushy, high-paying job. Clients’ wives are hitting on him and putting Nick, and his boss, in hot water. But monogamy? He’s never been a white picket fence kind of guy, and he’s not about to embrace the happily married lifestyle now. He needs a wife who doesn’t care about his steamy, extra-curricular love life…and he knows just the woman to fit the bill.  She needs a home…  Adalaide Sinclair spent years caring for her ill grandmother. Upon Grammy’s death, she’s stunned to find herself evicted from the only home she’s ever known and labeled a thief by her inheritance-hungry family. Addie needs to find a place to live and a job—fast. So when her childhood friend, Nick, proposes a no-sex marriage of convenience, she puts her dreams of true love and happily-ever-after on hold. Finding Prince Charming can wait a little longer, right?  But will their friendship survive the honeymoon?  When Nick and Addie unexpectedly win a dream honeymoon, they decide to go their separate ways during the ten-day vacation. Too bad a camera crew is waiting for them at the tropical paradise. Acting like a head-over-heels bride and groom for reality TV wreaks havoc on their no-sex agreement…and blurs the line between fantasy and reality. Will Nick and Addie remain married in name only, or will a romantic honeymoon for show turn them into true newlyweds?

Paolo Sorrentino, Carlo Petrini to Receive McKim Prize

MILAN — Italian film director Paolo Sorrentino, who last year won an Academy Award with “The Great Beauty,” and Carlo Petrini, president of non-profit Slow Food organization, are to receive the McKim Prize in Rome on Wednesday night.
The award ceremony will take place at the 17th century Villa Aurelia during a gala dinner organized by the American Academy in Rome, which every year hosts a fundraising event to give the opportunity to a few Italian talents focused on liberal arts to spend some time at the academy.
“The board decided to give the prize to Carlo Petrini because in the year of Expo, which features food as its main theme, he is definitely the Italian symbol of Slow Food  – also considered that food is becoming more and more important in our culture,” said Ginevra Elkann, who is the chairman of this year’s event. “And of course Paolo Sorrentino is one of the most important flags of the Italian cinema industry.”
American chef and food activist Alice Waters created the menu to be served at the event, which will include sheep’s milk ricotta ravioli with tomato and basil sauce; roasted spring lamb with green olive tapenade; spelt with pine nuts, currants and carrots, as well as

Matthew Gallagher Wins $25,000 New Labels Prize

TORONTO — As a teenager in junior high, Matthew Gallagher opened his notebook and wrote, “I will have my own fashion label one day.”
Fast-forward to 2015 and Maison Matthew Gallagher, the label helmed by the 28-year-old designer from Amherst, Nova Scotia, has fulfilled that dream and more by winning the Toronto Fashion Incubator’s New Labels contest.
The win, which included a 25,000 Canadian dollar, or $ 20,450, cash prize, was revealed earlier this month after a runway show before 300 buyers and other industry figures at Toronto’s downtown event space, One King Street West.
“When my name was announced I couldn’t hear a thing. My heart was pounding,” Gallagher said. “For someone from a small town, where fashion wasn’t on everyone’s radar, this victory was a validation. But above all else, it was my first big chance to showcase my passion for bringing old Hollywood glamour back to modern dressing. That’s my great ambition,” said Gallagher, whose winning fall presentation opened with a well-tailored, all-cream ensemble set to a remix of Doris Day’s “Que Sera, Sera.”
Gallagher, along with 30 other emerging Canadian designers, entered the annual competition in December 2014. Four finalists were selected by a judging panel that included designer David Dixon and

LONDON – Peter Pilotto is the winner of the inaugural Swarovski Collective Prize, a 25,000 euro, or $ 28,610, award for innovation that marks the 15th anniversary of the crystal maker’s fashion creative platform.
The 14 labels from London, New York and Paris that are taking part in this year’s program competed for the prize, which will be revealed here Tuesday. They include Mary Katrantzou, Marques Almeida, Prabal Gurung, Rodarte, Iris Van Herpen and Masha Ma.
“Peter Pilotto has a unique aesthetic,” said Nadja Swarovski, a member of the company’s executive board. “Christopher [De Vos] and Peter presented two beautiful collections which showcased the versatility of our product and how it could be incorporated into, as well as complement their own strong brand signature. It’s been interesting to watch them experiment so successfully with our crystals over the past two seasons. In addition, we were also very pleased to see the evolution that has taken place in their own collections recently, and to be a part of that process.
“For both spring 2015 and autumn 2015, Peter Pilotto explored an abundance of bold new applications and materials, from Perspex to 3-D florals, which they then contrasted with more delicate Swarovski crystals. In the last collection

This Just In: Meet the LVMH Prize Finalists

lvmh-prize-2015-holding

It’s never been easy to be a young fashion designer, but it’s sure not getting any easier. Which is why institutions like the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers—who offer both monetary grants and mentorship—are so entirely invaluable: Their time and attention can bring a promising young label on the cusp to full flourish. (Or at least help soothe the awkward, often prohibitively expensive, and occasionally harrowing growth process.) But it’s not all brotherly love: The competition has never been fiercer. Fresh off of the heels of their 26-designer-heavy event during Paris Fashion Week (whittled down from more than 1,000 applicants), LVMH—and a jury made up of the nine creative directors of their fashion houses Jonathan Anderson, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquière, Raf Simons, Phoebe Philo, Riccardo Tisci, Humberto Leon, and Carol Lim—have just announced the eight young fashion companies on the shortlist.

Here’s what you need to know about the designers (listed alphabetically, below) who made the cut: Consider it your cheat sheet to sussing out the next big thing.

 

Arthur Arbesser

An Austrian Central Saint Martins graduate and Armani alum, Arbesser’s womenswear line is based in Milan, and his designs—uniform-inspired tailoring, graphic, geometric knitwear, quirky frocks, diaphanous separates, and other similarly uncomplicated but entirely clever (and ultimately entirely fetching) clothes—have quickly made him the poster child for the city’s new, buzzy young industry energy.

 

Coperni Femme

Arnaud Vaillant and Sebastien Meyer founded their boutique ready-to-wear line—pragmatic, streamlined, minimalist-minded, with an obsession for artfully executed detail, futuristic construction, and a celestial mascot in Copernicus (yes, he of the heliocentric philosophies)—in Paris in 2013; they scooped up ANDAM’s First Collections Prize soon after.

 

Craig Green

A London-based menswear designer whose collections play with texture, volume, negative space, and silhouette. His spring 2015 collection drew comparisons to both Vivienne Westwood and Rei Kawakubo (and reportedly brought its audience to tears), while his fall 2015 showing drew on the idea of the uniform, and of masculinity, power, and vulnerability.

 

Faustine Steinmetz

The London-based Steinmetz may have cut her teeth studying pattern-cutting at Paris’s prestigious Atelier Chardon Savard and was among one of the last classes to study under legendary professor Louise Wilson at Central Saint Martins, but her namesake line—revamped iconic wardrobe classics like Levi’s 501s and tracksuit jackets, pullover sweatshirts, and denim skirts—is mind-bending in its construction: Recent collections name-checked the ancient craft of shibori, or used brushed and pulled wool in place of denim. (All textiles are handwoven on a traditional hand loom.) This is the type of imagination that makes a brand iconic.

 

Jacquemus

Simon Porte Jacquemus may be in his mid-twenties, but he shot to the forefront of the fashion industry’s collective consciousness for his ability to purvey a certain childlike joy and nostalgia with his designs: His spring collection played with bathing suit coverups and schoolgirl motifs; his fall showing with Sebastian Bieniek–inspired face paint and giant, hand-shaped cutouts.

 

Marques ‘ Almeida

Chances are that London-based Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida are responsible for the fraying hems of the denim-obsessive nearest you. (Their Topshop collection sold out—fast.) But don’t let the undone nature of their trademark trim fool you: There’s far more than just good jeans afoot. The duo’s band of loyal followers is expanding almost as quickly as their oeuvre—recent collections have applied the pair’s eye for an insouciant attitude to any number of textiles.

 

Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh

The only American designer in the group, Abloh’s résumé conveys a certain entrepreneurial energy stereotypical to these shores: founding RSVP Gallery in Chicago, designing a line of streetwear (the hotly consumed and oft-blogged Pyrex Vision, which created something of a street style frenzy), and working as creative director at Kanye Wests DONDA, among other visual art-based inclinations. Off-White encompasses both Abloh’s men’s and women’s range: The silhouette is long, layered, and achingly cool regardless of gender, and his graphic sensibility—those Charlie Hebdo–inspired “War Is Not Over!” tees and freshly-painted-looking toppers from his fall 2015 women’s collection may not be “streetwear” as such, but that’s where they’ll find the most traction—is still his strong suit.

 

Vetements

Head designer Demna Gvasalia may be able to count previous experience at Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Louis Vuitton, and Maison Martin Margiela on his résumé, but it’s where he and his merry band of Paris-based designers are going—fall included everything from diced-and-spliced denim and swollen, distended motorcycle jackets to Paris, Texas–inspired pink angora sweaterdresses and football scarves—that has the fashion industry rapt with attention.

Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Accidentally Agrees With Idiot

When you have a minute, and some headphones, this recent TED talk by Nobel Prize winner George Smoot on the high likelihood we are computer simulations is fascinating.

Then read the same ideas from an idiot, written a few years earlier, here

What does it say about the nature of reality when your top scientists and your village idiots have the same hypotheses?
