The Hyères Festival in the South of France wrapped up this weekend — with ten talented young photographers and ten designers competing for the grand prize in each respective category. (The prize money totals 15,000 euros, along with — for the fashion winner — an opportunity to collaborate with Chanel’s Métiers d’Art group.)

Yesterday, those winners were announced: Annelie Schubert won the fashion prize (awarded by judges Karl Lagerfeld, Carine Roitfeld, and Caroline de Maigret), Sjoerd Knibbeler took home the photography honor — and Anna Bornhold was announced as the winner of the 2015 Chloé Prize. Bornhold presented a cream-and-blue ombré buttoned jumpsuit, which she described as inspired by an imaginary voyage in space, for a sensation of weightlessness and protection at the same time. Have you ever tried that feeling of freedom?”
