PARIS MEN’S WEEK / — For the Y/PROJECT HOMME AW18 collection, designer Glenn Martens continues his play on versatility and wearability. Pieces are designed putting an emphasis on styling possibilities, as a celebration of people and individuality. Mixing sportswear and tailoring, jersey and knitwear, and flannel with colorful fake fur, the AW18 collection works as an eclectic ensemble of garments, appealing to different crowds.
The collection carries over signature styles like the cuff jeans, double jackets and shirts, loose high-waisted trackpants, pushed further introducing new fabrics which are reworked in overstated ways. Double-panel blazers are worked into jeans and coats, pleated shoulders are exaggerated into scarves and large hoods on the sweaters, fake fur cuff jeans.
Historical references make a reapperance featured on XL knit scarves Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine and King Henry II, or Joan of England and Edward III.
