Charles Jeffrey Loverboy and Doublet are also in the running.
LVMH has announced the 9 finalists for its 2018 younger designer prize, adding one more finalist to the shortlist because of the overall strength of the competition.
The 9 designers who made it to the final include A-COLD-WALL, Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, Doublet and Eckhaus Latta and comes a few weeks after the shortlist was announced.
Delphine Arnaut gave the following statement in a press release, “The quality and the standard of the fifth edition of the LVMH Prize made it difficult for our experts to narrow down the selection. As a result, we chose to extend the number of finalists to 9 rather than 8, since several of the semi-finalists obtained the same number of votes.”
The finalists will meet a jury of peers on June 6, where they will decide a winner.
