The International Woolmark Prize celebrates outstanding fashion talent from around the globe who showcase the beauty and versatility of Merino wool. The International Woolmark Prize 2019 Finalists’ collections are now available to shop at the below links through the program’s retailer network.


Colovos 


Winners of the International Woolmark Prize 2019 Womenswear Award, Colovos created their collection with inspiration from vintage knitted tennis, archery and cycling outfits, and the 1930s and 40s workwear that pre-dated synthetic fibres.

Sourcing innovative wool fabrications with contemporary finishes that evoke the look and feel of fabric staples such as denim, cotton poplin and silk, the high versatility of wool is at the heart of the collection.

Edward Crutchley


Winner of the International Woolmark Prize Menswear and Innovation Award, Edward Crutchley looks at textiles within culture and the role they play in the expression of identity for this collection. The unisex collection draws inspiration from French Breton lace, Javanese court dress batik prints, embroidery covered silhouettes of eastern Europe and Japanese kabuki costumes.

Crutchley created a lightweight 100% Merino wool weave, hand-printed and treated by a master of screen-printing in Kyoto, wax-finished 100% wool cavalry twill, which is durable and waterproof, and Shibori-dyed 100% Merino wool rib knits using centuries’ old methods of design dyeing.

Albus Lumen


Light, in terms of colour, garment structure and fabric weight, Albus Lumen’s Pura Interna collection intends to lift spirits, bringing an ethereal quality and a confidence that lies within its simplicity.

The collection features unbleached, lightweight wool, locally sourced from one of the only remaining mills in Australia. Harnessing elements of the environment from which this wool comes from, the brand focused on wool’s sustainability, showcasing wool as a trans-seasonal fibre for summer - a too often over-looked characteristic of the natural fibre.

Angel Chen 


Angel Chen’s collection was inspired by the lifestyle, independent spirit and determination of the Qiang ethnicity, a shepherds’ community from a region situated between the northwest of Sichuan and the east of Tibet.

The collection draws on the unisex silhouette and functional details of shepherds’ workwear, by way of using the wool bonded fabric for waterproof, wind proof, breathable and thermal insulation purposes, and double-face wool jersey with distinctive features such as machine washable, wrinkle resistance and odour resistance for enduring protection from the elements.

CMMN SWDN


The CMMN SWDN collection continues the brands dialogue of promoting conscious design and taking a slower approach to the design process.

The brand sourced discarded and pre-loved knits, giving them a new lease of life by needle punching through new 100% Merino wool in areas that the garments needed some love.

Daniel w. Fletcher 


DANIEL w. FLETCHER’s collection celebrates Daniel Fletcher’s own upbringing and heritage. Drawing inspiration from the youth of today maturing and learning to fight for their beliefs; this collection is a uniform to do this in.  

The rich history of textile manufacturing in the north of England is celebrated in the designs. The area’s influence is seen in the use of fine fabrics from British mills, superfine Merino wool in Prince of Wales check, boating stripes for tailoring and lambswool scarves made at Yorkshire’s historic Abraham Moon & Sons mill.

i-am-chen


Zhi Chen focused on classic elements – grid, line and point – for i-am-chen’s collection, inspired by American abstract painter Agnes Martin and her juxtaposition of simplicity and richness.

To emphasise Merino wool’s lightweight characteristics, i-am-chen changed the fundamental knitting structure by floating the 100% Superfine Merino wool yarn over a monofilament so that the wool hangs decoratively on the surface.

Nicholas Daley


Nicholas Daley’s collection, Reggae Klub, takes its name from Nicholas’ parents’ club night which ran from 1978-1982 in and around Scotland. By exploring his parents’ experiences, Daley maintains a sense of authenticity; referencing memorabilia such as the Reggae Klub T-shirt which was designed by his parents.

In collaboration with Hancock Vulcaniser Articles, Daley created a bonded Locharron Merino wool tartan check with rubberised cotton. Every garment is hand seam-taped together in the Scotland atelier, giving a 100% waterproof finishing.

Yohei Ohno


Yohei Ohno started developing his collection by going to the Library of Fabrics in Bishu, Ohno’s hometown, which is known for its wool manufacturing. Whilst exploring a variety of fabric samples, Ohno discovered a summer wool sample with striped patterns in a classic colour schemes.

Ohno was mesmerised by its rustic, yet delicate beauty and was inspired to create a new style of suiting for women - creating a collection that is empowering yet delicate, celebrating contrasts by combining the summer wool with bold cuttings and dramatic shapes.

YOUSER


YOUSER’s collection was inspired by how the Windigokan, a Native American warrior group in the Ojibwa tribe, ignored standard principles and portrayed random behaviour as if they were influenced by nature’s energy. This random behaviour compliments the freedom that YOUSER designs for, allowing a new flavour to be born through a combination of colour and patterns.

As an animal-friendly alternative to leather, Mooyeol Lee laminated a 98% Merino wool fabric, creating the weight and drape of leather for the collection’s bomber jacket.
