Eddy Anemian Wins the H&M Design Award

Eddy Anemian's winning collection at the H&M Awards

The winner of the third annual H&M Design Award was unveiled today at Mercedes-Benz Stockholm Fashion Week. The initiative was founded to support and celebrate fashion at its earliest stages and provide mentorship for young designers. This year’s contestants, who represent thirty-two schools across Europe and America, competed for a 50,000 euro cash prize, the chance to develop a collection for H&M, and the opportunity to show their collection to an audience of international press and buyers. Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s creative head of design and a member of the jury, offered, “It is a very inspiring process to work with the Design Award. It’s a difficult decision for us, as we have such a strong start field with such great students. To choose just one of them was very hard. You really have to go with your gut and see who gives you the most wow factor.” The jury—also consisting of fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu, fashion editor of Vogue Italia Sara Maino, Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery, executive fashion editor of BritishVogue Serena Hood, H&M’s creative advisor Margareta van den Bosch, and style star Michelle Violy Harper—finally chose the 24-year-old Belgian talent Eddy Anemian from La Cambre in Brussels.

Titled, “They Can Cut All Flowers, They Cannot Keep Spring From Coming” Anemian’s collection was inspired by Tilda Swinton’s character in Luca Guadagnino’s film I Am Love, as well as the French painter Ingres. The range was made up of long strips of floral-print upholstery fabrics that were reconstructed and sewn together into elegant and fluid shapes. This was contrasted with waterproof fabrics cut in flounces to give the effect of marble and ceramics. The silhouettes, meanwhile, were elongated with a strong influence of couture. “I am very happy and very excited to be here, and also looking forward to working with H&M’s very professional team in how to develop my designs into garments for the H&M stores,” Anemian told Style.com post-presentation. “We have only started this process, but I think you will see some of the patterns, fabrics, and shapes translated and developed into new pieces.” We’ll be keeping an eye out for his H&M capsule, which is set to hit stores this fall.

Mulberry To Skip The LFW Runway

-------

Mulberry Spring '14Following Emma Hill’s departure from the house earlier this year, Mulberry has announced that it will not be sending its Fall ’14 collection down the catwalk during London Fashion Week in February. The British brand told WWD that it has “not finalized its creative director search,” and that it will still participate in LFW, on a smaller scale. Word on the street is that Mary Katrantzou, Roland Mouret, Erdem Moralioglu, and Sophie Hulme—whose handbags have generated quite a buzz among editors and consumers alike—are all potentially up for the gig.

Runway to Red Carpet: A Pop Art Ka-Pow! and an Erdem Hat Trick

-------

Tom Hanks and Rita WilsonOne designer won the hearts of red-carpet walkers this week, and that was Erdem Moralioglu. First up was Hailee Steinfeld, who arrived at a photo call for her new film, Ender’s Game, in Berlin on Sunday afternoon in a playful Erdem Resort ’14 frock layered with black lace and white floral appliqués. On Monday, Clémence Poésy donned a black Erdem dress adorned with floral appliqués and ostrich feathers, from his Fall ’13 runway, to the MIPCOM 2013 party in Cannes. And the following evening, Naomi Watts chose a fitted floral number from Erdem for the 2013 Take Home a Nude Benefit Art Auction in New York.

But other designers had a chance to shine in front of the step-and-repeats, too. On Wednesday night, Rita Wilson joined her husband, Tom Hanks, at the London premiere of his new film, Captain Phillips, in a black Fall ’13 Tom Ford dress with a Pop art ka-pow! motif. Nicole Kidman showed some skin in a black Prada halter gown at the Huading Image Awards in Macao, China, on Monday, where she was awarded the statue for Best Global Actress in Motion Pictures. The supersexy dress featured a keyhole cutout on the bodice, and spangly orange flowers that spilled out of the skirt’s side slit. In case anyone was wondering: She’s still got it.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

Smythson’s Panama diary has some seriously impressive cred. Launched in 1908, it’s been used by everyone from Sigmund Freud and Katharine Hepburn to Jonathan Saunders and Dita Von Teese. For Spring ’14, Smythson is releasing a full-on Panama collection, comprising diaries, address books, manuscript books, and beyond. In celebration of the new range, the brand has called in young British artist Quentin Jones to create a series of pretty wild works. The set of ten pieces will feature the aforementioned influencers, as well as Hardy Amies, Waris Ahluwalia, Erdem Moralioglu, Bryan Ferry, Kylie Minogue, and Laura Bailey. The works—done in Jones’ signature, surreal style of mixed media—will explore the subjects’ relationships with their Panamas. An exhibition of the art, as well as the new Panama line, will be unveiled during a special event at Smythson’s New Bond Street store today, and the show will be open to the public from Monday. In the meantime, get your Smythson x Jones fix with a gif teasing the star-studded artworks, which debuts exclusively here.
