The winner of the H&M Design Award 2020 has been announced. The award, valued at €50,000, was awarded to Sabine Skarule, a Latvian graduate from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium for her collection inspired by the craft of her homeland.
The knitting techniques came from a time pre-internet when Sabine made clothes with her mother. Sabine took this heritage and gave it a fresh point of view, with knit pieces that played with the scale of stitches as well as folkloric patterns, contrasted with sharp yet feminine tailoring.
The H&M Design Awards 2020 was open to both BA and MA graduates from 42 selected design schools in 17 countries.
