ITS 2015

THE FUTURE

Among the ITS 2015 jurors are Massimo Giorgetti (Founder & Creative Director MSGM), Carlo Capasa (President of CNMI - Italian Fashion Chamber) and Oriole Cullen (Acting Senior Curator of Contemporary Fashion, Victoria & Albert Museum).

Past finalist Aitor Throup receives a recognition for his career. The concept for the edition is “THE FUTURE”.

Samsung Galaxy Award

Supporting young talents and encouraging them to create what enriches people’s lives constitutes the common grounds for the partnership established by ITS with Samsung Galaxy, which has been leading the mobile device industry pursuing not only technological inventiveness but also lifestyle enrichment. Samsung has a rich history of collaborating with the fashion industry and consistently looks for groundbreaking ways that allow consumers to express their personal style through their mobile devices.
As an everyday companion, a mobile device must be stylized with fashionable creativity. The Samsung Galaxy Award showcased the young talents’ creative blending of technology with fashion, accessories and jewelry design.

As an innovator of mobile industry, Samsung Galaxy partnered with ITS to encourage young talents to explore their creative ideas, and ultimately create a product that unites technology and fashion. Ten finalists were selected from ITS FASHION, ITS ACCESSORIES, ITS JEWELRY, and ITS ARTWORK, and were asked to develop proposals for two assignments to reinforce the features of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge: produce a new type of smartphone case for the Galaxy S6 or S6 edge and create a fashion item or art piece based on their design expertise, inspired by Galaxy S6 or S6 edge design or features.

There were no limitations in the form of the output nor in the use of materials. A selection of Swarovski Crystals was freely available to be used. The best prototype received the Samsung Galaxy Award, a cash prize of €10,000.
Matching the requested task and the Samsung Galaxy’s brand essence, creativeness and way of presentation were the judging criteria.

Generali Special Award

In 2015 the Generali Special Award was assigned to a designer whose career development has been, and continues to be, a remarkable pursue of unique ideas achieving a sustainable synthesis between creativity and entrepreneurship.
Among the over 550 finalists represented in the ITS Creative Archive, 54 - now working on their own brands - ran for the Generali Special Award, assigned by a committee including Simone Bemporad (Generali Group Director of Communications and Public Affairs), Barbara Franchin (ITS Director), Angelo Flaccavento (Indipendent Fashion Journalist) and Sara Maino (Senior editor of Vogue Italia and Vogue Talents).

Aitor Throup was the winner of the Generali Special Award due to the following reasons:

- He is an artist almost in the Renaissance meaning of the term, with a 360° scope vision, proposing revolutionary ideas, sourced by fine intelligence and amazing technical skills.

- He shows a complexly structured and coherent aesthetic corpus of his idea. His innovative vision blossoms from strong traditional roots.

- His Weltanschaung is unique and precious: it would be limiting to call fashion design what he expresses and does, as it is a mixture of art, architecture, engineering, experimentation and design.
