After winning the International Woolmark Prize back in 2017/18, Stockholm-based label L’Homme Rouge has announced a new exhibition of its prize-winning collection. Titled “Boat Building School,” the collection is inspired by the tradition of boat building in Sweden.

Pieces in the collection reflect this history, with the importance of sustainability emphasised as well as techniques of repairing boats and sails. Constructed from Merino wool — as per the Woolmark Prize rules — the collection encompasses knitwear, jackets and button-down shirts, as well as accessories including nautical-themed bags. In a modern update on the material, L’Homme Rouge worked with new weaving techniques to make Merino wool water-repellent and anti-wrinkle.

To display the collection, L’Homme Rouge has released a campaign video, and will host an exhibition of the nautical-themed pieces at Sven-Harrys museum in its home city which will run from June 27 until July 1. Explaining the idea behind holding the exhibition, L’Homme Rouge revealed that “since the collection will not be produced and sold this is a very nice opportunity to present it to the public.”
