Y/Project Homme Spring Summer 19 / by Slow Waves


"Glenn Martens has a knack for producing clothes in altered states, which made today’s Y/Project venue, the garden of the Faculté de Phamacie de Paris, a perfect fit whether deliberate or by coincidence.

Consider how his clothes might make you feel confident and in control thanks to oversize and structured silhouettes and extroverted color-blocking."


"Innovation is essential to design, and its success is usually determined by how deep and broadly it can penetrate. Y/Project looks would appear to be self-selecting; most people usually already want to wear them. "

This wasn’t a wholly crowd-pleasing collection, yet the blocks of billowing fabric and integrated layering felt important—as though they will turn up elsewhere in due time. For now, Martens noted, “I would get really bored if I only did easy looks. And it’s not about being beautiful; it’s about seeing how far we can go.”
