The winner of the H&M Design Award 2014 is 24 years old Eddy Anemian from France who just completed his final year at La Cambre, Brussels. H&M Design Award is an annual prize launched in 2012 to support and encourage young fashion graduates at the very beginning of their careers. The price is not only a huge career and financial boost with €50.000 in cash prize but Eddy also had the honorable opportunity to produce key pieces from his runway show into a capsule collection.
The winning collection by Eddy Anemian was inspired by Tilda Swinton’s character in the movie “I Am Love” and the French painter Ingres and consists of floral garments with a soft and free feeling contrasted by sharp volumes of water-repellent fabric with marbling effects.
“Eddy’s winning collection was breathtaking. Everyone at H&M has enjoyed working with Eddy to bring his exceptional work to a wider audience,”
- Ann-Sofie Johansson, Head of Design, New Development H&M.
To create this special collection, Eddy has worked closely with the H&M design team to capture the elegant mood and precision of his winning designs. The pieces will be available at selected H&M stores worldwide, as well as online, from October 23.
Behind the Scenes
H&M Design Award 2014 – Eddy Anemian for H&M
A couple of hours ago Kim Kardashian posted this picture with Cara Delevingne with the caption “Secret project” and tagged Cara and the editor in chief of LOVE Magazine Katie Grand @kjgrand. Seems like Cara and Kim are joining forces. It’s not too surprising that they bumped in each other considering they have a few mutual friends and connections. Recalling that Kendall walked Givenchy Spring 2015 together with Cara and that Riccardo Tisci is the biggest Kimye fanboy in the world of fashion. It was a matter of time.
So, Katie, Cara (Kara?) and Kim. What will the result be? Stay tuned!
Founded in 1951, Marimekko was born out of the desire to bring happiness to every day and printed fabrics gave the brand a strong and unique identity. Odalisque Magazine has created inspirational videos for two of Marimekko’s classical prints Siirtolapuutarha and Weather diary.
Marimekko was first a phenomenon that became a lifestyle. Then it eventually became an outlook on life: courageous, egalitarian and positive. At the heart of Marimekko lies strikingly inventive patterns and the clever use of colours shown on strong and timeless designs in clothing and other accessories as well as on interior decoration – from furnishing fabrics to tableware. All with the aim of creating aesthetic experiences for every moment.
Siirtolapuutarha (city garden) was created by Maija Louekari in 2009, and since then it has become a modern Marimekko classic. The drawings tell a tale of a journey from a bustling city to a lush garden allotment overflowing with flowers and vegetables. This autumn, the patterns are available in new purple colourways. See the collection.
The Weather Diary collection by Marimekko explores the seasonal changes in weather and their influence on people’s rhythm of life. The prints by Aino-Maija Metsola embody the whole range of seasonal weather patterns from the rolling in of heavy rain clouds, gentle drizzle and cool winds. See the collection.
