Immediately upon entering Maison de la Chimie, you could already feel the excitement coming from the crowd. With each new season, Glenn Marten’s collections become more and more “the ones to watch.” Indeed, the latest show did not disappoint. For his 5th women’s collection, Martens decided to continue exploring the idea of historical royalty as seen in his recent men’s collection in January. A baroque vision of 90s cool, Glenn knows how to keep things hip and wearable, which explains all the attention he has received of late. Adding some of the street vibes that everyone is craving at the moment to the mixed feminine/masculine aesthetic mastered by the designer creates the perfect formula for a successful look.
This season Glenn pushes his signature design even further by serving up amazing details like laced up dresses and pants, multiple layered jeans, high collar tops, ultra ruffled jeans, belts with buckles on buckles, track suit lining, delicate thigh cuts, exaggerated bows (one of Glenn’s favorites), and so on. We love the oversize volumes, color palette, and different textures, ranging from the shiny glittered dress and jumpsuit to the total denim look, yellow corduroy pants, and satin slip dresses.
Shoes are this season’s novelty. This is Y/Project’s first footwear line and, yet again, it’s a successful gamble: voluminous ruffled thigh-high boots, leg-length strappy rhinestone sandal heels, and witchy ankle boots… Another audacious move that gives a refreshing overall impression and makes you want to see more. Bravo!
