French luxury group LVMH has revealed a diverse selection of labels as the eight finalists for the sixth edition of its Young Fashion Designer Prize. The winning brand will be announced in Paris this June.

Even for a designer with a post-apocalyptic bent, this was a dystopian moment. That said this was a brilliantly staged show, where the images were worthy of a meeting between Pier Paolo Pasolini and D.W. Griffith.
Less than three months after appointing Kris Van Assche as its new artistic director, the French luxury fashion house has lifted the lid on its first campaign under the auspices of the Belgian designer.
