Swarovski is happy to announce the winner of this year`s International Festival of Fashion and Photography at Hyères.
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.

3.Paradis launch their Spring/Summer 2018 collection *ON IRA TOUS AU PARADIS* meaning We’ll all go to heaven in the brand’s native French, as the logical sequel to their AW17 collection Paradis Perdu. It explores the idea of reconstructing a safe haven and takes inspiration from the brand’s own unconventional path to paradise. This season 3.Paradis' Creative Director Emeric Rico Tchatchoua asks the questions “What does paradise mean to us as young people?” using garments as a platform to make people think about a question as old as time.
As part of a mostly performative one day event curated by Institut For Succes at the Danish National Gallery, artist Lukas Hofmann / Saliva transformed the vast gallery's foyer into a contemplative therapeutic space where he performed together with four young individuals. The group clothed in Louise Lyngh Bjerregaard’s garments migrated among many actions, exuding a melancholic aura and occasionally flattening their existence into a 2D distorted reflection of their identities by pressing their faces and bodies against a large pane of glass.
Astrid Andersen continues her exploration of finding new common ground for tradition and heritage with the contemporary sports-luxury sphere. This remains a common thread throughout Astrid Andersen’s collections - translating the familiar into something new and interpreting unexpected references as fresh and relevant to a generation championing a new way of dressing. This season takes the archetypical Safari theme as referenced throughout the history of fashion in various guises and turns its natural curiosity into a personal quest to discover unfamiliar territory for the brand’s aesthetics.
Much of LIam's SS18 collection carries the legend NOISE or a screaming bear motif through-out. The bear is Munch's Scream for a generation that just wants to be cute but the shit they have to deal with while moving onwards and upwards is breaking them down. The struggle is learning from this noise - from everything on our feed, how to originate not imitate? Don't, how-ever, confuse the cuddly nature with weakness because these teddy bears have teeth!
The American photographer William Eggleston (1939, Memphis Tennessee, US) is widely considered one of the leading photographers of the past decades. He has been a pioneer of colour photography from the mid-1960s onwards, and transformed everyday America into a photogenic subject. In William Eggleston – Los Alamos, Foam displays his portfolio of photographs that were taken on various road trips through the southern states of America between 1966 and 1974. The exhibition includes a number of iconic images, amongst which Eggleston’s first colour photograph.
Venice, May 2017- The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation’s collections have been enhanced by the acquisition of a rare oil on canvas by Amedeo Modigliani: Woman in a Sailor Shirt (La femme en blouse marine), of 1916. This was a testamentary bequest of the Venetian collector Luisa Toso.

Trousers; blazer; shirt; denim; leather: a wardrobe of heightened normality, emphasising the inclusivity of fashion. A single-breasted slate blue flannel coat is like an oversized zoot suit, its sleeves sculpted to emphasise the effect. Cuban embroideries embellish a shirt dress with flat-pressed collar, while a white Cuban shirt has wide sleeves that stop just above the elbow.
Plaid tailoring has been playfully cut, with an asymmetric front buttoning on the blazer, and a cropped leg on the trouser. Denim has raw edges and different stonewash treatments. A denim jacket is boxy and cropped with exaggerated sleeves.
