If anyone hadn’t heard of Saul Nash a fortnight ago, they must have now. After receiving multiple accolades since late April, he’s now received another key prize -- The Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.
With Glenn Martens in charge of style, the Italian jeans label will be showing its Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection in Japan in June, using the same inflatable-doll setting adopted for its Milanese show in February.
The Barcelona bridal event held between April 20 and 24 underlined the industry’s recovery, bringing together 18,600 attendees, 320 companies, 1,170 buyers and 34 fashion shows by brands such as Pronovias and Rosa Clará.
Saul Nash has won the 2022 International Woolmark Prize. Unveiled at an event in London, he was joined by the two designers behind South Africa’s Mmusomaxwell, who received the Karl Lagerfeld Award for Innovation.
The first West Coast exhibition dedicated to the influential designer just opened its doors at the L.A. County Museum of Art. Over 200 pieces are on display, all shown in correlation with historic pieces from the museum.
Two years after his last show, Alexander Wang returned to the catwalk in Chinatown, LA with a runway titled “Fortune City” that presented the designer’s pre-fall and fall 2022 collections, as well as a night market.
