Accessories Swarovski: Marina Chedel
Accessories Prix de public: Wendy Andreu
Having partnered with the International Festival of Fashion and Photography at Hyères, since 2009, Swarovski has reaffirmed its commitment to emerging talent by creating the first Swarovski Fashion Accessories Grand Prix of the Jury with Pierre Hardy as jury president.
Swarovski welcomed the 10 accessories finalists at its showroom and at Première Vision last February where they discovered the new crystal collections and a large variety of application techniques. Depending on their projects, they were able to select crystals to incorporate into their designs and were accompanied by Swarovski during the making of their collections.
For over 120 years, Swarovski has worked with designers to explore crystal as a versatile and inspiring creative component in fashion, and has a longstanding commitment to supporting innovation and young talents.
Over the Peak :
Marina Chedel created a collection both savage and urban by borrowing the vocabulary of mountain equipment and Swiss materials such as ash, suede, rabbit fur and goat hair applied on leather and synthetic foam. The strong and bold impact of her shoes collection and the use of asymmetrical platforms, heavy outer soles and crampons convinced the jury.
The Public and City of Hyères Award was awarded to Wendy Andreu from France for her creative collection of bags and hats.

Italy is one of the crown jewels of Old Europe, a country that is unique and diverse from both a geographical and cultural point of view. One must live it to understand it right, to understand the way the time has passed the places, the streets, the way the time has shaped the forms, the values and the attitudes, the way the traditions have remained the same and on the other side, the way it all has stood the test of time.

To Organize Delirium is the first full-scale U.S. retrospective in two decades of the Brazilian artist’s work. One of the most original artists of the twentieth century, Oiticica (1937—1980) made art that awakens us to our bodies, our senses, our feelings about being in the world: art that challenges us to assume a more active role. Beginning with geometric investigations in painting and drawing, Oiticica soon shifted to sculpture, architectural installations, writing, film, and large-scale environments of an increasingly immersive nature, works that transformed the viewer from a spectator into an active participant. The exhibition includes some of his large-scale installations, including Tropicalia and Eden, and examines the artist’s involvement with music and literature, as well as his response to politics and the social environment. The show captures the excitement, complexity, and activist nature of Oiticica’s art, focusing in particular on the decisive period he spent in New York in the 1970s, where he was stimulated by the art, music, poetry, and theater scenes.
When asked to reveal the secrets of his portrait and studio works, Irving Penn, reckoned master of modernist photography, once responded: “I try to find a person at a very serene, true, and fairly restful moment.”
