Fashion and photography from day to night at the 35th Hyères Festival
Day 3 at Villa Noailles for the 35th Hyères Festival. With the prize ceremony just a few hours away, this new day started with a visit of the Mercedes-Benz showroom to meet with the finalists in the fashion category. There, guests could discover the work of French designers Xavier Brisoux, Emma Bruschi, Marvin M’Toumo or Celine Shen as well as Belgian talent Tom Van Der Borght or Katarzyna Cichy from Poland – to name but a few. After a detour at the silkscreen printing atelier set up by American Vintage, and a tour of the exhibition of 2019 Photography Grand Prize winner Alice Mann, the itinerary continued with a lunch at Château Léoube. In an exterior scenography featuring photography by Cécile Bortoletti printed on while veils, the guests (Camélia Jordana, Yseult, Blanca Li, Ahmad Kontar, Sophie Fontanel…) all gathered for a break – with detour by the beach – before getting of with their day. Come afternoon, François-Marie Banier, Sophie Fontanel, Simon Johannin et Pierre Yovanovitch gathered for a book signing a the Villa, before joining the crowd at Tour des Templier for the opening of an exhibition by Hubert Crabrières, winner of the 2019 American Vintage Photography Prize.
