Sophie Theallet, who won the Woolmark Prize this week, cited photographs of her mother skiing with friends in bras and shorts as her inspiration. "I was shocked by the freedom and modernity they had; young socialites living a grand, care-free life," the designer tells Fashionista. "I imagined and transposed them living today—attending an extraordinary event at an observatory, on the top of the highest mountain in the Pyrénées, where a bright comet would pass through the sky. A magical evening and a peek at eternity." Not only is Theallet a cutting-edge designer, she knows how to strike a poetic chord, too. Click over to Fashionista to see the amazing photos. [Fashionista]
