Hyères Fashion & Photo Festival opens tomorrow
France’s prestigious annual fashion festival, which takes place in a Mallet-Stevens villa down on the Côte d’Azur, opens tomorrow. This year the jury is presided over by none other than Mr Raf Simons, and includes other heavyweights like Cathy Horyn from the New York Times, Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernandez from Proenza Schouler, Tim Blanks of Style.com or Christopher Kane. They’ll be trying to identify the next big thing from among 10 emerging fashion designers and 10 photographers. Following the festival this weekend, an exhibition of the work continues until the end of May.
29 April-2 May.
