Glenn Martens is at the forefront of this movement with his architecturally inspired pieces designed for his concept brand Y/Project. Based in Paris, Y/Project is about freedom, which is evident through it’s broad spectrum of garments, ranging from outlandish biomorphic shapes to quite reserved wearable pieces. Martens manages to retain a sense of luxury throughout his collections, an irreverent luxury that makes deconstruction look, well, refined.

Martens, a Royal Academy of Arts alum, has revitalized the brand that was founded by Yohan Serfaty, whose untimely passing gave way for Martens to implement his creative vision. Y/Project’s collections are interestingly spliced, consisting of half menswear and womenswear, and the remaining half being gender optional. The Y/Project aesthetic is something you will see many men wear, as the world further embraces individuality. Check out some of Y/Project’s avant garde looks below….
