DESIGNER FOR TOMORROW 2014 – MATTEO LAMANDINI
Matteo Lamandini has won the “Designer for Tomorrow” fashion talent award, presented by Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf and its online shop Fashion ID. The Italian designer was selected by the Jury Board – led by American designer and award Patron Tommy Hilfiger – after he presented his “Zoot Suit” collection on the catwalk of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
“For me, great fashion design is about defining your own unique style. That is something we have seen today in Matteo’s collection – he plays with scale and mixes traditional tartans with structured silhouettes.” Lamandini gives a modern twist to traditional items from the male wardrobe, such as narrow tailored coats, suits, and shirts printed with different check patterns.
