PARIS FASHION WEEK / — Glenn Martens takes his Y/PROJECT FEMME AW18 collection to the Théâtre des Champs Elysées this season, a perfect setting to feature his play on versatility and wearability. His signature style, an eclectic mix of downtown edge, preppy pop, haute couture and touches of historical references including smart tailoring with dramatic drapery. The collection works as an eclectic ensemble appealing to different women.
Concepts introduced in the men’s AW18 collection and signature styles are carried over and reworked in new ways. Just like the sweaters in the men’s collection, elegant silky bathrobes are sewn together, and double layered dresses, tops and knitwear can be worn fitted or loose.
The emblematic organza layers over denim jackets, dresses and shirts. The oversize slouchy boots are amplified with red tartan and seafoam velvet and the spiral sandals are coated with a patent layer.
