Y/project showed scandalous accessorıes that blew up socıal networks
The creative director of the brand Glenn Martens again managed to surprise everyone. This time – not only with things of a complex cut made of denim, but also with large decorations that will speak about the mood of their owner for himself. For the Spring/ Summer 2023 collection of Y/Project, Glenn Martens’ goal was to create an illusion.
This game between the real and the fake is eloquent in trompe-l’oeil pieces. Such as a second collaboration with the Jean Paul Gaultier brand for a ready-to-wear line, where emblematic Y/Project models are projected on the outfits. This illusion continues in the collection with elements such as the multiple collars and belts, that have been scanned and printed on the silhouettes, or some sweatshirts and t-shirts whose bottom give the effect of high-waisted jeans. This amusement around denim continues.
We can find it in trompe-l’oeil on a silk scarf. Pieces of denim are assembled like knitting. The jacqueron, the leather rectangle that covers the right rear of the pants, becomes a theme. Dresses and blazers are cut with detachable panels. Thanks to transparent nylon straps, tank tops look like they’re floating. The Y/Project look is inseparable from a certain irony: tops covered with rude baby silhouettes, golden earrings in the shape of a giving-finger hand, transparent openwork plastic rain boots. Pink, a color considered innocent, covers bags inserted with wires, which can be twisted. A very contemporary malice.
