HYÈRES, France — “I was inspired by the buildings of architect Tadao Ando and traditional Japanese kimonos,” said Kenta Matsushige, 25, before winning the Première Vision Grand Prize at the 29th edition of the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography, which ends today.
The Paris-based designer, who studied in Osaka and is a graduate of the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture school, impressed judges with his clean cotton shirt dresses and oversize coats in gray shades. “I admire Jil Sander and the work of Phoebe Philo at Céline,” he added, wearing a Kris Van Assche shirt.
