The soundtrack itself channels the designer’s ironic take on fashion, mixing the habanera rhythm of George Bizet’s opera Carmen with its Muppet Show parody.
Once again this season, Martens is blurring the perception of an infinity feel, as if the pieces were never-ending.
Asymmetry and disproportion run through the collection and distort the traditional silhouette.
What looks like the real structure is always twisted and creates draped gold 3-D effects. The lining pops out of the blazers and becomes a buttonhole, revealing the building garment and creating new volumes.
The Y / PROJECT design ethos turns what may look so familiar at first sight into something unexpected.
A pocket becomes a sleeve, a collar opens up and turns into a shoulder pad, a classic bomber jacket can be worn upside down.
Martens’ prolific creativity comes to life in a show irrigated by liquefied inspirations, where eclectic references are blended together.

Y / PROJECT AS A TOOL OF INDIVIDUAL EXPRESSION.
Under the nave of the Temple of the Louvre Oratory, Glenn Martens continues to push the deconstructivist approach of Y / PROJECT as a tool of individual expression.
The show’s soundtrack itself expresses the designer’s ironic look on fashion, mixing George Bizet’s Carmen with his parody by the Muppet Show.
Y / PROJECT SS20 – ASYMMETRY AND DISPROPORTION
Once again this season, Glenn Martens blurs our perception of the garment by creating impossible objects giving an illusion of infinity. Asymmetry and disproportion are the red thread of the collection and deform the traditional silhouette.
What at first sight seems like the actual structure of the garment is constantly misguided to create drapery and relief effects. The linings come out of the back of the blazers and become buttonholes, revealing the construction of the coat and producing new volumes.
Y / PROJECT transforms what seems familiar at first sight into something unexpected. A pocket becomes a sleeve, a collar opens and turns into an epaulette, a classic bomber jacket can actually be worn in any direction.
Glenn Martens‘ boundless creativity comes alive in a parade irrigated by fluid inspirations, where eclectic references blend and become hybrid.
More than ever, the PE20 collection offers silhouettes that inspire reflection. With the versatility of clothing as a motto, Y / PROJECT celebrates the expression of individuality.
