A huge logistics hangar of the courier company DPD, located at Porte de la Chapelle, in the north of Paris, with its numbered gray columns and its cash transport vehicles: the decor chosen by Glenn Martens for the Y/Project fashion show Fall/Winter 2022 does not take half measures.

In addition to sixty looks, the Belgian has anticipated his upcoming debut at Jean Paul Gaultier, succeeding Chitose Abe, the designer of cult Japanese label Sacai, as part of the Parisian fashion house’s new cycle of unique creative collaborations unveiled each season, with his new collection.
With trompe-l’oeil as the central theme, his collection was an obvious tribute to the French couturier, reinterpreting Jean Paul Gaultier’s emblematic and suggestive signature prints, in particular trompe-l’oeil naked bodies, thus playing with gender concept.
He also used intense colors, the association of different pieces typical of the brand, and the superposition of patterns and fabrics to create “rolled up” clothes, in line with the deconstruction so characteristic of his work.
