The final of the LVMH emerging designer competition will be held on June 2 at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris. This year’s jury includes two new names: Kenzo’s creative director Nigo, and Silvia Venturini Fendi.
Kenzo, Prada and Ambush are some of the many luxury labels active in the virtual world, whether commercialising NFTs or making significant investments in the metaverse, as Philipp Plein and Gucci did recently.
The menswear collections for next winter presented in Milan and Paris signalled a return to a chic, comfortable style, redefining silhouettes by means of textures and proportions, with a focus on outerwear.
This Paris menswear season’s big debut was by Nigo at Kenzo on Sunday morning, and the Japanese cult designer’s first collection for the Japanese-born house was certainly made with finesse and a floral flourish.
Louis Vuitton has unveiled 200 Trunks 200 Visionaries, an art and charity celebrating the 200th anniversary of its founder's birth. Frank Gehry, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Kim Jones and Marc Jacobs among others took part.
London-based designer Ifeanyi Okwuadi won the fashion prize hands down at the 36th edition of the French festival, which placed a strong emphasis on sustainability, while Capucine Huguet won the accessories prize.
