Glenn Martens Heads to a Parisian Garden for Y/Project's SS23 Menswear Collection
Featuring the second part of the designer’s collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier.
From his FILA collaboration to his team-up with Jean Paul Gaultier, Glenn Martens is undeniably one of the hottest designers of this generation. This time around at Paris Fashion Week Men’s, the creative invited guests to a lush garden to present his Spring/Summer 2023 collection for Y/Project.
Martens maintained his signature playful aesthetic throughout the runway presentation, which mostly featured denim. In true Y/Project fashion, classic silhouettes were distorted to create unexpected silhouettes while featuring graphics including an Eiffel Tower logo. The collection also featured the second part of Martens’ partnership with Jean Paul Gaultier, with new trompe l’œil designs appearing on stage. These motifs were applied to slip dresses as well as knit pieces and a long-sleeved tee with belted jeans printed onto the bottom of the garment to create an illusional effect.
Elsewhere, garments were styled with oversized thigh-high boots while the white tank top trend continued with invisible shoulder straps. Other standouts include low-waist, maxi-length denim skirts of the ’00s making a return, along with middle finger earrings that are set to become next season’s buzzy accessory.
