Marcel Wanders Added to Jury for Safilo Scouting Contest





(Press Release)
MILAN – Marcel Wanders will be the honorary member of the jury that will judge and select the winning projects for the scouting contest “A forward vision for eyewear heritage,” a partnership project between Safilo and L’Uomo Vogue.

Wanders will chair the contest jury together with Luisa Delgado, CEO of Safilo, and Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue. Wanders recently collaborated with Safilo by creating an exclusive eyewear collection of optical and sun styles.

“It is so important that we give young designers every opportunity to showcase their desire to create. A contest such as this allows the world to take notice of Safilo and amazing talent that might otherwise go unnoticed,” says Wanders.

“We are very proud to count on Marcel in our jury. Safilo and Marcel Wanders partnered for the exclusive Safilo Eyewear Collection that we launched earlier this spring, and have seen Marcel’s talent inspire eyewear in new-to-the-market ways,” says Luisa Delgado, CEO of Safilo. “Marcel will make a unique contribution to our award selection of talents to really lead the future.”

Safilo and L’Uomo Vogue’s first-ever scouting initiative and mentoring project in the eyewear industry was launched in February to find and nurture the next generation of eyewear experts. The application deadline has been extended to June 30. Open to all designers passionate about eyewear, the submission process requires a resume or portfolio, product sketches and a possible moodboard.


Open to young creative talents passionate about eyewear, and in collaboration with some of the most prestigious international schools of design, the contest aims to support innovative design. For the complete contest regulations, visit
