Change of strategy at Y/Project which, from this season, will present only two mixed collections per year, in January and June. This slowdown was explained by the current crisis, due to the pandemic, which is affecting the industry, but also by the recent appointment of Glenn Martens as creative director at Diesel.

‘’Starting this season, Y/Project merges men’s and women’s wear into one unified collection that will be presented twice a year during Paris Men’s Fashion Week. Glenn Martens has decided to break away from the intense pace of four fashion weeks a year in order to free more time for creativity and experimentation’’, can we read in the show notes.
Thus, the Parisian label presented this season and for the first time two collections, men and women, in one co-ed. In around sixty looks, Glenn Martens had offered a new interpretation of the brand’s iconic shapes: sinuous and twisted curves that have made the reputation of the fashion house.
Alongside its core denim pieces, there were tailored coats, shirts and shirt dresses which can be buttoned and unbuttoned to build a formal or more casual look, fleece hoodies that can be worn as a crew neck, polo neck or turtleneck as well as equestrian-print knitwears.
Glenn Martens introduced this season a ‘’novelty’’ – not so new as that since the concept was explored for the first time in the Fall/Winter 2017 collection: a metallic wire directly integrated into the fabric allowing to transform or deform the pieces and the patterns, giving to his creations a very disruptive aesthetic.
Glenn Martens also announced on this occasion his second collaboration with Canada Goose on a rainwear capsule, including oversized capes and parkas as well as an association with the Brazilian brand Melissa for a line of baroque mules and Persian rug slides.
