    On sunday, april 30, young swiss designer Vanessa schindler won the Grand Jury Prize Première Vision 2017 at the 32nd Hyères Festival of Fashion and Photography. The prize comes with a 15,000-euro grant, which Première Vision presented alongside Jury President Bertrand Guyon, Design Director of Schiaparelli.

    With Urethane pool, chapitre 2 Vanessa schindler strives to find an alternative to the classic design and construction of clothing. She draws inspiration from architecture and interior decoration, composing each silhouette in her collection as though she were arranging a unique interior with contrasting materials, vegetation, room to move… and she uses a material that is unexpected in her field: urethane, a liquid polymer.
    With her womenswear collection entitled Urethane, Chapitre 2 she creates an interplay of textures and transparency by laying urethane over tulle and fine netting. Besides their technical performance, the silhouettes are elegant and luxurious. The collection centres on long dresses and negligees that spring to life as the light catches them.

    Festival at Hyères 2016

    The winner of the 2016 Grand Jury Prize Première Vision at the 31st edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères is Wataru Tominaga.
    This year Julien Dossena, Artistic Director of Paco Rabanne, presided over the Jury.
    The boldness, graphic power and strong visual impact of Wataru Tominaga’s collection, enriched by his research into fabrics and techniques, unanimously won over the festival jury. This research was evident in a collection reaching beyond masculine/feminine identities to create a positive dynamic. Inspired by emancipated fringe groups such as hippies or nerds, Wataru Tominaga seeks to break down stereotypes. With his collection of overstitched pleats, wide flocked vinyl stripes and juxtapositions of bright colours, the Japanese designer expresses his goal of creating a new genre, one likely to encourage a different vision of men’s ready to wear.
