The British Government recently unveiled its annual New Year Honors list, which recognizes and awards over 1,000 Brits each year for accomplishments across multiple categories. The 2020 edition includes graphic designer Peter Saville, MatchesFashion founders Ruth and Tom Chapman, director Steve McQueen and iconic musician Elton John. Recipients will be awarded over the span of 2020 by Queen Elizabeth II.

Peter Saville has been awarded the high honor of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) for his numerous contributions to the music and fashion industries. In addition to his work with Factory Records designing album covers (including Joy Division‘s classic album art), Saville has worked closely with brands such as Burberry, Lacoste, Givenchy and Calvin Klein with a focus on modernizing brand identity. He has also collaborated with the likes of ULIQLO and Dr. Martens.

Ruth and Tom Chapman have been given the honor of Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for their role in developing the online fashion sphere. “It brings immense pride to have been at the forefront of the changing face of retail, from the humble beginnings of one brick-and-mortar store to one of the foremost global luxury e-commerce businesses, flying the flag for Great Britain in more than 170 countries,” the couple said in a recent statement.

Additionally, artist and filmmaker Steve McQueen received a knighthood, and Elton John received the highest honor from the British government, Companion of Honor.

Upon publishing the new list, the British government’s website accidentally published the home addresses of all of the winners – including Elton John. However, the information was quickly removed and an investigation has been launched into the matter.

Elsewhere in fashion, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Tom Ford are all absent from New York Fashion Week’s schedule.
