LVMH Prize 2022 to be awarded on June 2 in Paris
The final of the LVMH Prize 2022 will take place in June. In the last two years, disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the event’s finals were postponed to September, but the ninth edition of the emerging fashion designer competition staged by the world’s number one luxury group will hail its winners on June 2 in Paris, at the Louis Vuitton Foundation.
“The jury, consisting of Jonathan Anderson, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Nicolas Ghesquière, Kim Jones, Stella McCartney, Delphine Arnault, Jean-Paul Claverie and Sidney Toledano, will welcome two new personalities this year: the Creative Director of Kenzo, Nigo, and the Creative Director of Fendi’s menswear and women’s accessories collections, Silvia Venturini Fendi,” stated LVMH in a press release, indicating that, like last year, the public will be able to take a peek backstage and follow the final’s highlights on social media.
This year’s eight finalists are: Knwls, by British designer Charlotte Knowles with Canadian colleague Alexander Arsenault; S.S. Daley by British designer Steven Stokey Daley; Irish designer Róisín Pierce; Anglo-Nigerian designers Ineyie Tokyo James, with the Tokyo James label, and Idris Balogun, with the Winnie New York label; Erl, by US designer Eli Russell Linnetz; Ashlyn, by South Korean designer Ashlynn Park; and RyunosukeOkazaki by Japanese designer Ryunosuke Okazaki.
On June 2, the jury will select the best among these young talents, awarding the 2022 LVMH Prize and also the Karl Lagerfeld Prize.
