DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: MARINE SERRE

Glenn Marten's Y/PROJECT continues into its 9th Season with FW18, seeing fully-functional garments doubled, layered, and distorted upon each other. Tiered Denims, High-waisted vented pants and cropped shorts, and thematic spirals within accesories round out the bulky and amorphous tops. A dichotomy is struck between materials used from stiff Jacquards to sheer lenticular fabrics, further accenting the dynamic of Martens design capabilites, which are seen on full display for FW18.

Martens graduated from Antwerps Royal Academy of Fine Arts at the age of 25. Hesitantly accepted an appointment as creative director of the late Yohan Serfatys Y/Project in 2013 after a discussion with Serfaty's buisness partner, Gilles Elalouf about diverting the brands sleek and dark direction. “There was no point in recreating Yohan and what he was doing, because I’m not Yohan,” -"...I kept the codes of Yohan, which I’ve translated in my own way.” Marten's experience under Serfaty as well as Jean Paul Gaultier (his first appointment after graduation) tailored his skillset as a CD to helm one of the industries fastest rising houses.

DILARA FINDIKOGLU F/W18

Dilara Findikoglu fashions clothes that speak words of love, feminism, and Neo-Gothic opulence. Dynamic shoulders sit above sinuous waistlines, finished with embroidery-peppered velvet, cut-out breastplates loosely tied by satin ribbons, while vinyl coats sport shades of blood and knife-like sleeve belts.

"LA VIE EN YOHJI"

Yohji Yamamoto draws from Picassan cubism for AW18, carving smooth figures into his signature wool gabardines. Geometric shoulders are done in tencels, with arms folding like origami resulting in sharp elbows. Yamamoto’s duality between serious and nonsensical is ever apparent, as seen in the acrylic ‘feasting pig” adornments on long, strong shoulder coats, and ‘La Vie En Yohji’ applied to oversized black button ups.

CAMIEL FORTGENS F/W18

Camiel Fortgens Sixth offering AW18 narrates a continuation into the Amsterdam based designers process, displaying traces of the garment development via uncut hems, loose threads, and an application of topstitching. Fortgens weaves a simple story with his bare-faced approach to construction that results in a tangibly honest product meant for both men and women alike.
