Y/Project FW21 - Organized Chaos
Glenn Martens’ Fall Winter 2021 collection for Y/Project was a genre of curated chaos that fused a line up of fashion genres including evening wear, streetwear , leather, equestrian clothing among others. With his expert tailoring and creativity, the designer set out to create pieces that were given a visual boost with interesting twists and drapery. This included unusual distorted silhouettes, trompe l’oeil doublings, ballooned pieces, double-breasted jackets that were created carefully to chaotic perfection, “I have always wanted to embrace the mistakes and the ugliness, sometimes, in design. I think we always wanted to be a brand that was pushing borders and limits and playing with acceptable and unacceptable.” Throughout the chaos , somehow there was also harmony as the styling of each piece worked perfectly in creating the perfect look that acted as an anecdote of the times we currently live in which can be so often confusing.
