  • Edition 2013

    The PV Awards 2013 winners:

    The Grand Jury Prize : Komatsu Seiren (Japon)

    Komatsu Seiren won the Grand Prize with an amazing “sandwich” fabric: a deep green polyurethane foam inserted between two printed fabrics, both of which are woollen imposters. One looks like a men’s herringbone, the other looks like a tartan dressed up with a bright blue colour. The unexpectedness of this fabric lies in its behaviour. Thanks to the compressible foam, the fabric remembers an impression for just a few minutes, before slowly returning to its initial shape. The well-rounded fabric takes on volumes of variable dimensions, marries shapes and softly accompanies motion.

    The Innovation Prize : Inseta (Italie)

    Inseta proposes a new generation silk, with a bouncy bonding, comprised of two perfectly smooth and slippery pure silks. With a black back and a green face, it’s quite sophisticated looking, with a surprisingly smooth handle and very modern way of moving. This assembly reveals a muscular suppleness that is almost rubbery, and completely springy.

    The Handle Prize : Luigi Colombo (Italie)

    This fabric by Luigi Colombo is most importantly the meeting of warm nobility and light thickness. It’s the subtle marriage of a classically elegant camelhair broadcloth and a resolutely technical polyurethane foam. It’s a fabric that brings together the performance universe and citified elegance. New creative and design possibilities open up thanks to its warm and foamy handle, with its soft firmness.

    The Imagination Prize : H.O.H. (Autriche)

    H.O.H. presents a very modern and quite couture guipure, a balance of tradition and modernity. Starting with cut-out tires, the original materials are given a new dimension, and hand assembled. To create this project H.O.H. partnered with an Italian workshop specialised in artistic recycling, to create a link between art, craft and industry. One of the house’s historic patterns, which is traditionally developed for embroideries, was transposed onto the material thanks to the original, hand-made cut/sewn assembly process, which made possible this fanciful and unexpected meeting between eco-friendliness and haute couture.

  • Edition 2010

    President of the jury, Ennio Capasa, the founder and creative director of Costume National.

    The PV Awards 2010 winners:

    The Grand Jury Prize : LANIFICIO LUIGI RICCERI srl (Italie)
    Upset the senses and intuition with a pure silk. Run rings around heaviness with suppleness. Surprise with a handle that is almost synthetic, and a rustle that shouts silk. Take on the nobility of twill with disruptive raw yarns. And roll it all up in roundness with the lightness of a springy handle.

    Handle Prize : MARIOBOSELLI YARNS & JERSEY SpA (Italie)
    Ally density with fluidity, consistency with liquidity, with elasticity. Play on a visible metallic coldness with a weighty mobility, articulate the structures of a viscose milano in generous waves – and make reflections vibrate like lively silver.

    Innovation Prize : SCHOELLER TEXTIL AG (Suisse)
    Discreetly enhance elegance. Draw on high-tech innovations for jackets and trousers with an impeccably woollen aspect. Direction: a protective chicness, with virtuoso heat-regulation that is impalpable and invisible, to create unlined garments with a wool/polyester/stretch bonding.

    Imagination Prize : K. LINE Co. Ltd (Japon)
    Start with the perfection of an intense and absolute plain, the perfection of density, and add a flaming red heart with a poetic immensity. Like a deliciously multilayered pastry, beat in a precious core, trap it between two layers of soberness, thus uniting shade and lifeforce – freeing clothing imagination in all the prowess of detail.

    Special Woolmark Prize : NIKKE-THE JAPAN WOOL TEXTILE Co. (Japon)
    Stamp wool with the mark of modernity. Combine solidity with suppleness in a pure wool. Reconcile dryness and reassurance, through intimately blended, finely irregular and subtly slubbed colours. Harmonise the sturdy tautness of yarns with the voluptuousness of weaves for a skilfully absorbed gleam.
