Y/Project‘s knack for post-modernist dressing was alive and well at the label’s Fall/Winter 2020 runway show at Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday. Haphazardly tucked garments and uneven silhouettes recalled some of the eccentric elements from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2020 showcase, while creative director Glenn Martens played up texture and layering this season as a practical approach for the fall.
Knitwear, textural trousers and various denim pieces were prevalent in the assortment, presented in seasonal shades like burgundy, orange and navy that was undercut with powder blue for a softer touch. While materials such as leather and sherpa offered cold weather-ready fabrications throughout, Martens also incorporated lightweight elements through items like sheer button-ups and gauzy women’s dresses, infusing a subtle delicacy in the range. There was also a retro sensibility through doses of velour track suits and oversized leather blazers, referencing the burgeoning ’70s trend that’s currently making its way onto the scene.
As for print, plaids and patchwork detailing provided classic patterns on styles like suits and blazers. Meanwhile, the occasional paisley print or tiger graphic kicked up the personality on a selection of scarves and sweatpants, while a splash of metallic pieces toward the finale lent the obligatory nod to a futuristic aesthetic.
