Once can’t help, but I note that Glenn Martens‘ autumn-winter 2018 collection for Y/Project had something of a show-girl. The venue, which appeared to be the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées on the fancy Avenue Montaigne, was also a clue. Spotlight stealers? Draped taffeta gowns, intricate embroideries on sheer tops, floor-sweeping lengths and a couture-ish tube dress swishing with gold fringing. Of course, all that galore and splendour done in a signature, Y/Project manner, read: stylishly over-sized and distorted.
