Designer: Glen MartensInspiration: A meeting in the main entrance of Salle Pleyel, bathed with an Art déco atmosphere. Models dressed in unusual but simple and couture clothing pass through the narrow hallways lined with guests. Every season the designer excels, proposing to bend the rules, a dialogue between men and women whilst always creating new proportions.Collection: Multiple propositions appealing to many women. Dresses and polos with coloured stripes are emphasized with zigzagged straps and drapes on the front. Knit is also present in the collection seen through low-necked cardigans. Tracksuits become jeans and trousers becomes a skirts. Glen Martens plays with materials and forms for a surprising but successful result. Evening dresses and suits take on a new dimension, highlighted with his floral scarfs, finishing a very couture silhouette.Note: The new line of accessories with accordion bags + sunglasses born from a collaboration with Linda Farrow + XXL jewelry. Interview :Glenn Martens : Globally, the stature of many models is a New Look, the 50s, and the idea was to really present the clothes. We work a lot on patronage and on construction, there are a lot of architectural experiments but not only on sweatshirts with big logos placed one on top of the other. I found that we really must put fashion in the spotlight before hype. It’s here where we really represent the silhouette, the construction and the idea.It’s never just a knitted jumper or sweatshirt. The first few dresses in the collection are long classic and basic, but they also cover the leg, when you put your leg inside it becomes a kind of legging which begins to drape. So the idea is to include something creative even in the simplest of pieces.Music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information).
