Marine Serre, a 25-year-old French designer known for edgy sportswear staples laced with traditional Islamic motifs, has won the 2017 LVMH Prize for emerging talent.
The award was presented to Ms. Serre by the pop star Rihanna on Friday at a ceremony in Paris. One of eight finalists for the LVMH prize, now in its fourth year and considered the most lucrative in the industry, Ms. Serre will receive 300,000 euros (about $336,000) and a year of mentoring from within the professional ranks of LVMH, the French luxury group.
The judges also awarded a special prize to the Japanese designer Kozaburo Akasaka, the creative director of Kozaburo, for what they called “his delicately deconstructed men’s wear.” He will receive a 150,000 euro grant (about $168,000) and 12 months of mentoring from LVMH.
