We started in London and now yes, we’re still covering Men’s Fashion Month. After a quick layover in Milan, next stop—Paris! Jet lagged or nah, We’ve been lucky enough to spend time with some of our favorite men’s designers—backstage and in front of the runway.. Below we give you all the fun stuff that goes down at fashion week minus the parts that involve airport security—Here it goes:
Thanks to Instagram hip-hop legends (or just dudes with one Soundcloud track) musician’s style choices are accessible to everyone, well—except for someone like, Napoleon. Clothes have always been one of the main attractions of rap music, while fans of other genre’s flock to the merch table a hip-hop fan rolls up to the show with an outfit inspired or just mimicking the performer. Seriously, if you’ve been to a Kanye show you know what we’re talking about. Martens looks at this, while also exploring historical leaders wardrobes, you know— before they all decided to wear grandpa suits. Every. Single. Day.
Deep purples, graphic scarves, draped over shoulders like royalty. Martens remixes classic silhouettes with 20th century fabrics. None of the pieces are lost in translation, even though the inspirations are world apart. They are binded together with flexible wire and cloth, and sealed with the designer’s engineering skills and craftsmanship. So in summary—picture this: Eminem and Napoleon are stuck on a deserted island with only one dvd, Step Up 2: The Streets. This might sound like the plot to a new Bill & Ted film (if a studio exec is reading, just venmo me) that we’d most definitely want to watch. But unfortunately, Y/Project’s Glenn Martens beat us to it.
