Glenn Martens presents Y/Project AW19 collection at Pitti Uomo

Creative Director at Y/Project, Glenn Martens, has unveiled the brand’s AW19 menswear collection at Pitti Uomo. True to his style of bending the norms, Martens delivered a high-concept show aimed at transporting his guests outside of time and space, with the dark cloister lit only by handheld lights given to guests at the entrance. Nothing like a bit of theatre, eh?

The new Y/Project AW19 collection celebrates the bold creativity that Martens has delivered to the brand for the last 5 years. Strong recognisable aesthetic codes - such as pop-up pants and double-shoulder shirts - are developed in a softer and more elegant manner than in previous years, with pop-up and double-shoulder designs permeating through the tailored wardrobe, offering a 3D twist to classic wool trousers and formal tuxedo.

The menswear collection is expanding its collections, introducing its own masculine footwear and bag lines - both hand-crafted in Italy. The black nylon bags come in a brown leather frame structure and are available in a variety of styles: weekend bag, backpack and fanny pack.

Glenn Martens continues to bend norms with new collection

All shoe styles are square-toed, and are available in a variety of materials and colours: baby blue or sand suede, metallic, crocodile-embossed or patent leather. Bold thigh-high boots and tuxedo-inspired black and white men’s dress shoes complete the line. Women’s lace-up mid-calf boots come in the same same materials and color palette as the men’s and revisit the pointed shape.
