A Parisian label founded in 2022 by Anthony Alvarez, Bluemarble explores a vast spectrum of memories through
the notion of travel. Each season it delivers a wardrobe nourished by urban cultures, subcultures and the
MTV generation. For Fall-Winter 2022-2023, the designer offered us an incredible shot of color with a highly
inspired collection, from the vibrancy of New York to the savoir-faire of Paris to the heat of the Philippines.
Always with a sportswear spirit, the pieces are eclectic: vibrant patchwork parkas, trucker neck sweatshirt
revisited, long cardigan sublimated with rhinestones … A collection that has necessarily pleased Timothée
Chalamet, photographed wearing one of the hoodies tie and dye of the brand in November 2021. What does he
have in store for us this season?
“I’m still shaking!”. Winner of the ANDAM 2021 Award, and after four digital-only seasons, Bianca Saunders
presented her very first physical show at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris for Fall-Winter 2022-2023, in front
of a handful of hand-picked guests. The designer’s minimalism and British and Jamaican heritage were once
again highlighted via a wardrobe that bridges tailoring, denim and bodywear, as she tells Vogue: “I explore
how to shape around the male body, exaggerating certain body parts through illusion. My clothes reveal themselves
when they move”. What we like? The revised and corrected cuts, the check patterns that follow the body, or
the effortless style suits.
Last year, KidSuper, founded by American Colm Dillane, dazzled the jury of the LVMH Prize, which named it
winner of the Karl Lagerfeld Prize, alongside two other labels, Rui and Lukhanyo Mdingi. For fall-winter 2022-2023,
the designer is banking on a video of about sixteen minutes, with guest-stars such as Princess Nokia, DJ Jazzy
Jeff and Marc Jacobs. This is an optimistic collection with arty and vitaminized pieces, designer suits, knitted
sweaters in a thousand colors, as well as coats with paint explosions that turn into real works of art. We
can’t wait to see what he has in store for us for spring-summer 2023.
Winner of the Karl Lagerfeld Prize at the LVMH 2021 Prize, like KidSuper, Lukhanyo Mdingi unveiled his Bodyland
collection at the heart of the Espace Voltaire, a place dedicated to contemporary art. Through this wardrobe,
the designer, who founded his brand in 2022 in Cape Town, South Africa, aspires to only one thing: to highlight
the human being and the craft. The result is ultra-desirable knit sweaters, belted pants, patterned knit polo
shirts, not to mention the chromatic range, a direct tribute to the designer’s origins.

Hed Mayner won the Karl Lagerfeld Prize (formerly the Special Jury Prize, renamed in honor of the visionary and self-taught
designer who passed away on February 19, 2022), at the inaugural LVMH 2022 Prize competition, which annually recognizes
a young fashion designer, selected by a committee of industry professionals as well as a panel of judges, for talent
and creativity. The 33-year-old designer founded his eponymous unisex house in 2022, inspired by his origins, through
a wardrobe imagined with pieces that are both structured and fluid. Influenced by the traditional orthodox Jewish tailoring
signature, he infuses his collections with a military impulse, an undeniably timeless spirit filled with spirituality.
Underneath the colorful silk of Casablanca lies Charaf Tajer, a French-Moroccan designer who has made the Moroccan
effervescence his spearhead: “My parents met in a workshop in Casablanca and they fell in love with the city.
My approach to colors is directly linked to this country since my childhood” he confides to Vogue. In the space
of three years, he has managed to electrify fashion with his inspirations halfway between Morocco and the 16th
arrondissement of Paris, his aesthetic filled with optimism and a singular vision of luxury. His credo is to break
the codes, as when he adorns the necks of young men with pearl necklaces, reinforcing the genderless spirit of
today’s fashion. More than an invitation to travel, Charaf Tajer has started a real fashion revolution. https://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/show_user.php?userid=9706891 GoRunway
“We see ourselves as visual artists. Each collection wants to preserve the aesthetic that a work of art
should provoke.” This is how Florentin Glémarec and Kévin Nompeix characterize the very DNA of EGONlab.
Founded in 2022 and named as a nod to the expressionist painter Egon Schiele, the French fashion house
focuses on a non-genre fashion, inclusive and composed of timeless reinterpreted by the duo: “We wanted
to create a wearable brand that can be found in the street, with a wide genderless selection and adapted
to all ages. Their wardrobe mixes elegant tailoring, punk spirit and eclectic artistic references galore.
It is thanks to their subversive vision and their boundless energy that they won the prestigious Pierre
Bergé prize at the ANDAM 2021 ceremony. One thing is for sure, the duo will continue to make a lot of
Archie M. Alled-Martinez left his native Spain for London in 2022, where he joined Central Saint Martins.
There he began a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design and a BA Honors in Fashion Knitwear, before being
honored in 2022 with the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Award, which allowed him to receive 10,000 euros
and join the studio of an LVMH group house for a year. For her spring-summer 2020 collection, entirely
made of knitwear, Alled-Martinez imagined a wardrobe of eleven silhouettes that defy the limits of this
technique used in couture. In terms of inspiration, we found a spirit straight from the Palace years and
its Parisian icons such as Jacques de Bascher. On the program, perfectly cut suits, tailored tops and
models with exposed seams, which highlight new knitting techniques and which give pride of place to modern
couture. A visionary creator in short, who has great hours ahead of him. cardiganssweaters Courtesy of Alled-Martinez
