Europe’s Four Finalists for the International Woolmark Prize Revealed  

Four of the 12 global finalists for the 2018/19 International Woolmark prize were announced in London on Tuesday, Daniel W. Fletcher, Nicholas Daley and Edward Crutchley, all of whom are from the U.K., and Cmmn Swdn from Sweden. They will go on to compete for the final award, which will be held in London in February.
The big reveal came during a lunch at Somerset House in London on Tuesday, with the victorious designers now preparing to elaborate on their collections ahead of the final. All five designers — Cmmn Swdn is designed by Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund — cast wool in the starring role of their very different collections.
The prize showcases international young talent with designs that highlight the versatility of merino wool. Each finalist will be awarded $ 52,100, and over the course of the next few months, they’ll work on producing a capsule collection that will be judged in February.
Crutchley, who designs a signature collection that shows in London and who also works with Kim Jones at Dior, said he was interested in how cultures express themselves through textiles. He worked with a mix of Breton lace and Javanese batik, and looked at Kabuki, cowboy and biker culture.

Buzzy Antwerp-Based Duo Wins Hyères Prize

HYÈRES, France — It’s the ultimate love story, with designer couple Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh scooping the Première Vision Grand Prize at the 33rd edition of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography.
Winning over a jury headed by Haider Ackermann with their playful yet politically charged men’s wear collection, “Fish or Fight,” of the 10 finalists, Botter and Herrebrugh were the most established.
The Amsterdam-based men’s wear brand since launching for spring 2017 counts eight points of sale, including H. Lorenzo in Los Angeles. It presented as part of the VFiles show at New York Fashion Week in September 2016, and is also one of nine finalists competing for this year’s LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers. Winning Hyères may prove a bittersweet moment for the designers as it may impact their chances of being selected for the LVMH Prize.
Botter and Herrebrugh are based in Antwerp, but grew up in the island of Curaçao  and the Dominican Republic, respectively, with Caribbean style the main inspiration for their work. Herrebrugh, 28, studied fashion at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, while Botter, 32, graduated with a master’s from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts last June.

Helen Cammock Named Winner of Max Mara Art Prize for Women

ART AWARD: Max Mara has awarded Helen Cammock the Art Prize for women.
The biannual award from the Italian label held in association with Whitechapel Gallery was presented on Monday evening. The judging panel consisted of Iwona Blazwick, director of the Whitechapel Gallery; gallerist Vanessa Carlos; artist Laure Prouvost; collector Marcelle Joseph, and art critic Rachel Spence.
The London-based artist’s work spans across moving image, photography, writing, poetry, spoken word, song, performance, printmaking and installation.
“I have never before experienced a structured opportunity that encompasses travel, research, making and then showing over a sustained period,” said Cammock. “Over the six month residency I’ll find myself in a culture that is new to me, meet practitioners who work in different ways to me and consider how my practice can move into dialogue with new histories. It is an opportunity for space and time to focus on being an artist — this is perhaps the most significant aspect of this prize.”
Cammock’s residency will commence next month and she will travel to several Italian cities including Bologna, Florence, Venice, Rome, Palermo and Reggio Emilia. She plans to explore how emotions are expressed in Italian culture in formats such as opera, classical and folk music, art, poetry, writing

Bodice, Antar-Agni Win Regional Awards for Woolmark Prize

Indian designers won the women’s and men’s wear awards for the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East region of the International Woolmark Prize.
Ruchika Sachdeva, whose label Bodice won the women’s wear award, and Ujjawal Dubey, whose label Antar-Agni won in the men’s wear category, both emphasized wool’s weave and the fabric itself, in their respective collections.
“India has an advantage in that it is such a treasure trove. The handspun merino wool also lends us an abundance of techniques. The tradition of craft available for centuries adds to that,” Sachdeva, who started Bodice six years ago, told WWD.
The nominees for the Indian Subcontinent and Middle East included, for men’s wear Antar-Agni – India; Dhruv Kapoor – India; Theorem – India; Varoin Marwah – Dubai, and Ziggi Men’s Wear – Pakistan. For women’s wear, the nominees were Bodice – India; Hemang Agrawal – India; Matar – Bahrain; Khadija Rahman – Pakistan; Nour Najem – Lebanon; Timi Hayek – Lebanon; Péro – India, and Zonia Anwaar – Pakistan.
While wool has not really been a traditional fabric in India, it has made major inroads into the market in recent years and designers have been working their way past the mental block created by the subcontinent’s

International Woolmark Prize Names European Finalists

MILAN — The International Woolmark Prize revealed its European regional finalists here on Tuesday, with David Laport and L’Homme Rouge winning for women’s wear and men’s wear, respectively.
The winners will receive 70,000 Australian dollars as a contribution to develop their final collection to be presented at the international finals that will take place in Florence in January.
Winners of the final competition will earn an additional 200,000 Australian dollars to invest in the development of their business and the opportunity to have their collections distributed by prominent retailers, such as Harvey Nichols in the U.K, L’Eclaireur in Paris and Boon the Shop in South Korea.
For the regional competition, Dutch designer Laport realized a feminine orange dress crafted in Merino wool crepe fabric and inspired by David Hockney’s “A Bigger Splash” painting.
“He walked in and I just though ‘wow’ at first sight, without even speaking,” said Edward Buchanan, creative director of the Sansovino 6 label, who was part of the women’s wear judging panel. “There was a simplicity and a joy, which we’re missing in fashion right now,” he added.
Regarding the craftsmanship, Buchanan praised Laport’s use of Merino wool, which, “along with David’s delicacy in crafting the details, has enhanced the freshness of

Sofia Coppola Becomes Second Woman To Win Cannes Film Festival’s Directing Prize

Ending a 56-year gap, Sofia Coppola became the second woman to receive the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival as the gala wrapped up on Sunday.

Russian Yuliya Solntseva won for “The Story of the Flaming Years” in 1961. Coppola was honored for “The Beguiled,” a Southern Gothic horror that updates the 1971 Civil War drama starring Clint Eastwood. Three of the director’s previous features ― “The Virgin Suicides,” “Marie Antoinette” and “The Bling Ring” ― also competed at Cannes.

“I was thrilled to get this movie made and it’s such an exciting start to be honored in Cannes,” Coppola said in a statement.

Along with praising “my great team and cast,” she thanked Universal Studios and one of its speciality divisions, Focus Features, “for their support of women-driven films.”

Nicole Kidman, a star of “The Beguiled” and three other Cannes selections, received a special prize marking the French festival’s 70th anniversary.

The coveted Palme d’Or, one of filmmaking’s most lauded honors, went to “The Square,” a surprising choice for a festival that typically favors intense dramas. “The Square” is a farce about an art museum staging a radical exhibition that sparks a social crisis. 

Pedro Almódovar, the acclaimed director of “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and “Talk to Her,” headed this year’s jury, which also included Will Smith, Jessica Chastain, Chinese actress Fan Bingbing, South Korean director Park Chan-wook and Italian director Paolo Sorrentino.

Here’s the full list of winners. Many of the hits at Cannes factor into the Oscar race.

Palme d’Or: “The Square,” a Swedish art-world satire directed by Ruben Östlund

Grand Prix: “120 Beats Per Minute,” an AIDS drama directed by Robin Campillo

Jury Prize: “Loveless,” a Russian missing-child drama directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev

Best Actress: Diane Kruger, “In the Fade”

Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, “You Were Never Really Here”

Best Director: Sofia Coppola, “The Beguiled” 

Best Screenplay: a tie between “You Were Never Really Here” (written by Lynne Ramsay) and “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” (written by Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou)

Camera d’Or, honoring the best debut feature: “Jeune Femme,” directed by Léonor Sérraille 

Best Short Film: “A Gentle Night,” directed by Qiu Yang

70th Anniversary Prize: Nicole Kidman, who starred in four Cannes titles (”The Beguiled,” “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” and “Top of the Lake: China Girl”)

Vanessa Schindler Wins Hyères Prize

MATERIAL GIRL: Vanessa Schindler scooped the Première Vision Grand Prize at the 32nd edition of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography.
The 29-year-old Swiss designer, who recently completed a master’s degree in fashion at the Geneva University of Art and Design, impressed a jury headed by Maison Schiaparelli style director Bertrand Guyon with her innovative textile research.
The designer also won the event’s Public and City of Hyères award.
Schindler on her neo-chic, cinematic silhouettes combined synthetic, interiors-inspired materials with urethane, a chemical resin that joins fabrics together when it dries, which she used to replace hems on garments and for ornamentation based on wavy, abstract patterns and plant-like motifs.
Key silhouettes in her women’s wear collection — “Urethane Pool, Chapitre 2” — included a synthetic fur coat edged with urethane trims, a lilac dress in fake velour with cape sleeves, and a cotton sweatshirt with organic urethane inserts. The collection’s showpiece was an Elsa Schiaparelli-worthy brown urethane gown worked with 3-D molded shell and garter snake motifs.
Among inspirations, the designer cited the interiors of the recently demolished, spiral-shaped Bavinger House — completed by architect Bruce Goff in Norman, Okla., in the U.S. in 1955, and considered one of the earliest examples of modernist biomimicry —

Colson Whitehead’s ‘The Underground Railroad’ Wins Pulitzer Prize

Colson Whitehead’s National Book Award–winning speculative history novel The Underground Railroad garnered another top honor on Monday, with the announcement that the book had been awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction for 2017.

The novel reimagines the Underground Railroad as a real, tangible subway system carrying Southern slaves north. Whitehead’s fantastical twist on the nation’s history takes readers on a time-collapsed tour through the horrors visited upon black Americans from slavery onward, including medical exploitation and expulsion from certain territories. Upon its publication in August 2016, the book was well-received by critics, including HuffPost, which praised Whitehead’s “compelling, fluid blend of historical and speculative fiction.”

Lynn Nottage received the prize in Drama for her Broadway debut, “Sweat.” The play follows a diverse chorus of nine working class people in a dying Pennsylvania factory town from 2000 to 2008. After the show’s opening, HuffPost wrote that the timely, emotionally searing play “provided Broadway with a much-needed elemental shake-up.”

Also recognized in the arts were Tyehimba Jess, awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for his collection Olio, and Du Yun, awarded the Prize in Music for her eclectic opera about child trafficking, “Angel’s Bone.” 

Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy by Heather Ann Thompson received the prize for History, and the Biography prize went to The Return: Fathers, Sons and the Land in Between by Hisham Matar. Matthew Desmond’s Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City added to its substantial list of awards with the Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction.

The long history of the Pulitzer Prizes ― this year marked its 101st batch of awards ― has been critiqued for its overwhelmingly white and male honorees. The Pulitzers given out for the arts in 2017 featured five creators of color and three women out of the seven winners. 

The journalism Pulitzers honored several local news teams, including the staff of the East Bay Times in Oakland, California, and Eric Eyre of the Charleston Gazette-Mail in West Virginia for their reporting on urgent local matters. Hilton Als, theater critic for The New Yorker, was awarded the Prize in Criticism for “bold and original reviews that strove to put stage dramas within a real-world cultural context, particularly the shifting landscape of gender, sexuality and race.”

France Awards Human Rights Prize to Copenhagen Summit’s Eva Kruse

COPENHAGEN — The French embassy in Denmark has awarded its Human Rights Prize to Eva Kruse, founder and chief executive officer of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit and former head of Copenhagen Fashion Week, for her work on sustainability in fashion and on promoting better working conditions in garment factories.
Kruse launched the Copenhagen Summit on sustainability in fashion on the margins of the United Nations’ “COP 15” climate change conference in 2009. Since then the biannual conferences have brought together fashion executives, humanitarian organizations, policy-makers and others to discuss ways to mobilize the international fashion industry to become more fair and environmentally sustainable.
In an early-morning reception at the French embassy during Copenhagen Fashion Week, Ambassador François Zimeray joked that the night had been short for many after an evening of fashion parties.
He pointed out that while the joy and frivolity of the fashion industry may seem opposed to the seriousness of human rights issues, both fields dealt with individual dignity and freedom of expressions.
“Wearing fashion says, ‘I am a person, I am an individual and I want to dialogue with the world,’” Zimeray said. “Fashion has to do with the dignity of the person, so it cannot work against the dignity of people [who work in the

Cottweiler, the U.K. underground brand by Ben Cottrell and Matthew Dainty, wowed judges with a utility-focused capsule collection that paired extra-fine merino weaves that could easily be mistaken for cotton with nylon puffer vests.
“Cottweiler stood out because it was so contemporary and in the conversation,” said Hood By Air’s Oliver, citing the brand’s strong showing during London Men’s Fashion Week and collaboration with Reebok.
“We felt like Cottweiler was at a place where the brand could handle this cash flow,”  he added. “Seeing how well they’ve done with collaborations I think it’s exciting to see what they can do with this investment on their

Rochambeau Taps Nike, Avery Dennison and Others for Woolmark Prize Collection

Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper, the design team behind New York-based men’s wear brand Rochambeau, looked to multiple resources to help them compete at the highest level for the 2016-17 International Woolmark Prize contest, which will be awarded in Paris on Wednesday, Jan. 23.
Rochambeau, who won the U.S. Woolmark prize last July along with women’s designer Gabriela Hearst, will compete against MÜNN from Asia, Ex Infinitas from Australia, Cottweiler from Britain, Tonsure from Europe and Bounipun from India.
Their winning look for the U.S. competition, which was influenced by the late artist Dash Snow, consisted of a boxer short made from wool suit fabric, a hand-waxed wool vest that looked like trompe’l’oeil leather, a wool hat and trousers. Chandler hopes to build on that with a larger collection that’s been created with help from Nike, Avery Dennison, Chromatic, Larsson and Jennings, Evrythng and Albertus Swanepoel. Rochambeau also worked with fabric mills including Dashing Tweeds, American Woolen, Aurotex, Steady Tex and Kendor Fabrics.
“We want to continue the narrative we created this past summer by bringing on great partners and innovating with wool,” said Chandler, who added that the entire line was created in New York.

Hyères Festival Adds Accessories Prize With Swarovski

PARIS — The Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography will feature a new competition this year, a prize for fashion accessories sponsored by Swarovski.
Ten young designers will be invited to show micro-collections of handbags, footwear, jewelry, hats and sunglasses in a new space at the Villa Noailles, organizers of the festival said Monday.
Now in its 32nd year, the Hyères festival has been a launchpad for major fashion designers including Viktor & Rolf, Anthony Vaccarello and Julien Dossena. This will be the first time the festival has hosted a competition for accessories.
The ten finalists — whose names will be revealed during Paris couture week in late January — will receive support from Swarovski and Première Vision in the creation of their collections for the festival. Fashion-focused video studio Psycho-PH will create a film about the designers’ work to be projected before the runway shows at the festival.
During the festival the designers will have the chance to present their collections in private meetings with members of the jury before staging a joint exhibition that will be open to the public.

Bob Dylan ‘beyond words’ to receive Nobel Prize for Literature

Bob Dylan says to receive a Nobel prize is ‘beyond words’ in a speech read on his behalf at the ceremony.
BBC News – Entertainment & Arts

SPECIAL DISCOUNT UPDATE:


Bob Dylan Honored At Nobel Prize Banquet Despite Absence

The times, they are a changin’.

When word of Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize triumph caught wind, the literary world broke into heated, divisive debate. Does a songwriter deserve the recognition ― and money ― typically reserved for poets and novelists?

Just as dissenters began to accept the unexpected choice, Dylan stirred the pot. He declined to comment on ― or even accept ― the prize until two weeks after its announcement. Then, last month, the Swedish Academy announced that he would not attend the ceremony, “due to pre-existing commitments.”

The Academy noted in the same announcement that past winners — including writer Doris Lessing — have been unable to claim their prize at the ceremony.

So, diehard Dylan fans had no speech-in-song-form to anticipate, at least not one sung by Dylan himself. Dylan said he would write a “speech of thanks” to be presented at the banquet. Instead, Professor Horace Engdahl, a Swedish literary historian and critic, presented the award and delivered his own remarks.

“By means of his oeuvre, Bob Dylan has changed our idea of what poetry can be and how it can work,” Engdahl said. [You can read a full transcript of the speech here.]

Patti Smith attended the ceremony, and performed a cover of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” as tribute to Dylan. Smith was asked to perform before Dylan’s win was announced; she’d planned to play one of her own songs, but switched gears when Dylan, who influenced her own work, was awarded the prize.

“I have been following him since I was a teenager, half a century to be exact,” Smith said in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Smith stumbled at one point during the performance, forgetting the lyric: “I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin’.” The singer apologized, explaining that she was nervous, and finished out the song. 

Perhaps one day, Smith will attend under different circumstances, as a musician-turned-literary influencer herself. For now, though, she sings Dylan’s words, chillingly apt for America’s current political climate. 

“I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,” she sang, highlighting the importance of words that can carry weight, and inspire change.

Louis Vuitton Designs Case for Rugby World Cup 2015 Webb Ellis Prize

CASE WORK: Louis Vuitton is making its debut on the rugby pitch with the creation of a bespoke case to hold the Webb Ellis Cup, rugby’s greatest prize. Vuitton’s latest trunk will make its debut at the Rugby World Cup final on Oct. 31 in Twickenham, England.
Handmade at the brand’s Asnières workshop near Paris, the travel case has been designed to contain the sterling silver and gold-plate trophy. It is covered in Louis Vuitton’s monogram canvas and has been fitted with the company’s signature brass lock and corners. It opens from the front and at the top to allow the trophy to be easily removed.
The same Vuitton workshop also made the trunk that holds the world’s oldest sporting trophy, the silver ewer of the America’s Cup, which dates to 1851. More recently, Louis Vuitton designed the trophy case for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Trophy.
World Rugby chairman Bernard Lapasset called the Webb Ellis Cup “the most coveted prize in rugby,” and “a symbol of unity, enjoyment, participation and excellence. We are excited about our collaboration with a fashion house as renowned as Louis Vuitton and delighted with the stunning, modern-classic case.”

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.

Paying Homage to India: An Interview With Pushcart Prize Nominee, Leeya Mehta

A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dreamt of.
-Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela Day was celebrated around the world on July 18th. It is a day to remember the greatness of a man who dedicated his life to helping the world understand democracy, freedom, equality, diversity, reconciliation, and respect.

2015-07-19-1437277250-2048324-NelsonMandelaDay.jpg

Recently, I had the opportunity to connect with, Leeya Mehta, She was a child when Nelson Mandela was released from prison in 1989 after serving his 27-year sentence.

The movement for a democratic South Africa was felt greatly in India whose own independence was achieved just 15 years before Mandela’s sentence began. Leeya Mehta’s school invited leaders of the ANC to come talk to the children. Mehta felt rooted in a culture of nonviolent resistance for change, surrounded by the energy of a new India, and a witness to its diverse cultural and religious traditions.

After earning a Master’s in economics and politics from Oxford University she traveled throughout the world eventually settling in Washington, DC. She was recently nominated for a Pushcart Prize for her poem, “The Abduction,” published by the Beloit Poetry Journal.

Here she shares her reflections as a writer and her hopes to pay homage to the diverse cultures, religions, social movements, countries and the people who weave their complexities and contradictions, along with her own, through her poems and essays.

Poem: “David & The Hummingbird”
For Nelson Mandela

Essay: “What kind of society do we want to live In?:
A reflection on crime & punishment.”

Writer’s Process: The Diction of Death & Violence

Poem: ” The Towers of Silence” and Writing For & As The “Other”

Inspiration: India As A Muse

Young Designers Vie For LVMH Prize

GETTING THE MESSAGE OUT: Anton Belinskiy’s sweater said it all: “Poor But Cool.” He’s one of 26 young designers who displayed their wares at the headquarters of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton on Wednesday night, all vying for a cash prize of 300,000 euros, or $ 335,560 at current exchange, plus a year of coaching from the luxury group.
There was a mood of camaraderie among the designers, despite the walls separating their stands and all the jockeying for attention as members from the expert panel, who must whittle down the crop to eight finalists, toured the room along with top LVMH brass.
“It’s really exciting to see all these great talents here, and to see all the energy,” said Delphine Arnault, executive vice president of Louis Vuitton and the woman who conceived the prize as a powerful talent scout and advocate for young designers at the luxury giant her family controls. “It’s already great for them and I hope it’ll help their careers.”
The 45 experts have two days to inspect collections and meet designers before casting their vote. Finalists are to face a jury whose members include Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquière, Raf Simons, Phoebe Philo, Riccardo Tisci, Jonathan Anderson and
