RUNWAY DIARY: Y/PROJECT SPRING SUMMER 2015

It was refreshing to see a totally different side of Y/Project devoid of the usual dark post-apocalyptic leather ensembles that we have seen in the past. Infusing romantic sensibilities to clean modern architectural cuts, newly-appointed Belgian designer Glenn Martens breathes new life to the conceptual brand that Yohan Serfaty created back in 2010. This season Y/Project also has a noticeable strong sportswear vibe and urban appeal as seen on the perfecto jackets, graphic print tops, cut-out jersey dresses and baggy bottoms. The Royal Academy alum showcased a wide array of proportions from body-hugging tops and dresses to shapeless loose-fitting trousers and maxi skirts served in mostly neutral and monochromatic hues. The womenswear is quite impressive as Glenn Martens introduced several breathtakingly beautiful sculptural silhouettes. Some of my favorites are the structured cape-like belted jacket, double-layer skirt and the perfecto jacket with detachable tail. This collection is undeniably sophisticated wearable clothing at its best!
