It was all about disheveled dressing at Y/Project’s Spring/Summer 2020 runway show during Paris Fashion Week today. Creative director Glenn Martens stuck to his method of unconventional design in this latest showcase, opting to let janky tailoring and lop-sided silhouettes dominate the range.
While expected pieces like trench coats, blazers, button-downs and knitwear were aplenty, it wasn’t without some level of unevenness applied to them to distort the typically perfect hemlines expected of such wares. Collared shirts featuring a slanted placket replaced the top’s usual formality with a touch of humor, lending the effect that the style had simply been buttoned wrong. Pants, though exaggerated in size, were plastered with zip pockets to ensure functionality, while on the other end of the spectrum fitted leggings served as a more snug option.
On the sportier end, asymmetrical track suits made their way into the assortment, offered in navy and white for practicality. Conversely, oversized suits in options such as pinstripes and tan brought out the more classic side of the bunch. None other than one of today’s favorite accessories, the waist pouch, finished off the looks.
