Y/Project Fall Winter 2024-25 Lookbook

Y/Project Fall Winter 2024-2025 collection lookbook (52 outfits).

Fashion fans were left wanting more when Glenn Martens, the creative force behind Y/Project, made the surprise decision to forego a runway show this season. Citing financial constraints, Martens opted to prioritize production and ensure his collection reached stores on time.

The disappointment of not seeing Y/Project's signature sculptural pieces come to life on the runway was softened by the reveal of a captivating lookbook. The images featured an eclectic cast, including Martens' father, stylist Ursini Gysi, designer Lamine Badian Kouyaté, and even Ye (formerly Kanye West).

Inspiration for the collection struck a poignant chord. Martens drew upon the imagery of "pleurants," the mourning sculptures adorning medieval tombs, in response to a personal loss. Umberto Eco's novel, "The Name of the Rose," also played a role.

The collection itself showcased Martens' mastery of draping. Familiar garments like button-down shirts and fleece jackets were transformed with the addition of hoods or sheer panels. Martens employed his signature use of transformable elements – velcro closures and bendable wire – allowing wearers to manipulate silhouettes. A coat could morph into a cape, while a floral skirt could drastically alter its shape. Veiled elements shrouded other pieces, giving a new spin on the "fashion nun" look.

Provocative touches were also present. Bondage photo prints echoed a theme seen elsewhere this season, but this type of explicit imagery is a recurring thread in Y/Project's DNA. Martens playfully hinted that a successful "It" bag could pave the way for a future runway return. His unique moldable wire accessories, incorporated into bags of various sizes, ensure his hardware stands out from the crowd.

While the runway may not have materialized this season, Y/Project's Fall Winter collection, unveiled through its captivating lookbook, promises a season of innovative, transformable garments and audacious accessories.
