Paris, France – At Y/Project, artistic director Glenn Martens is focusing on the subtle nuances that define the young men that wear the brand as they mature and grow. This season he calls upon a neutral color palette to express the ever-increasing versatility of the house’s DNA. The result is that of something somewhat relaxed, but with a stylish that includes lots of oversized fits with gentle contrasting details.
The silhouettes feature tailoring that is reminiscent of the late 1980s and early 1990s. We see fancy suit blazers with exaggerated wide shoulders and large lapels along with trousers cut far above the waistline. The short sleeves on the button down shirts have large proportions. Micro-cuff details embellish the pant legs too.
Glenn Martens has opted for knits, jersey denim cotton, linen and nylon. He has placed them on colors of tan, ivory, olive, etc. When all these details are conjugated into one, a cohesive urban spirit is created in this Spring / Summer 2018 collection, but still with the modern coolness of a neglected affair thanks to the constant deconstruction.
