DYNE Wins International Woolmark Prize for Innovation
The Nike and Billionaire Boys Club designer is the first to take home the prize.
The Woolmark Company introduced a third prize as part of its annual awards ceremony, selecting a brand that best represents innovation in wool fabric and yarn design, and DYNE took home the inaugural trophy.
From a pool of 65 entrants, the Woolmark Company chose DYNE, acknowledging that the brand “has been going from strength to strength since its inception in 2015.” Headed by ex-Nike, YEEZY and Billionaire Boys Club creative Christopher Bevans, DYNE creates forward-looking sportswear, blending progressive technology with street-ready graphics while utilizing cutting-edge fabrics in its designs. The label also took home the U.S. Woolmark prize earlier last year.
Meanwhile, Bodice and Matthew Miller picked up the International Woolmark Prizes for womenswear and menswear, respectively. In other sportswear news, Nike has revealed Team USA’s Olympic gear.
