OLIVIER ROUSTEING, Kate Bosworth and Nick Knight, were joined by a host of esteemed fashion names in London yesterday to choose a winner of H&M’s 2016 Design Award, eventually crowning Royal Academy of Art graduate Hannah Jinkins triumphant – a unanimous decision by the panel, Rousteing told us.
“She was one of my favourites so it wasn’t difficult for me. It wasn’t difficult for anyone, we all agreed and all loved her,” he told us, referring to the full panel which Katy England, Floriane de Saint Pierre, Chiara Ferragni, and H&M’s Margareta van den Bosch and Ann-Sofie Johansson helped to make up. “Hannah knew how to make her collection really strong and deep, but at the same time the cuts were great. It was really defined – rough but at the same time sophisticated. It was almost poetic.”
