Glenn Martens unveiled his Spring/Summer 2021 collection and announced the launch of his “Evergreen Collection“. He selected a range of historic Y/Project pieces with a representative design twist.Each design is revisited to be produced in the most ethical and sustainable way, including carbon responsibility with the brand’s certified production, packaging, shipping, branding, materials and trimmings. This selection will not follow the markdown system and will be sold every season while adding new Y/Project classics along the way.

This sustainable range will be entirely produced within the European Union with a mix of certified organic and recycled fabrics. A percentage of the proceeds will also be donated to an ecological charity.

Y/PROJECT will also unveil its first-ever e-commerce platform in the Fall 2020. The e-shop will carry a selection of the main collection, as well as the new “Evergreen” line.

Glenn announced this news with a letter you can read below:

I fell in love with fashion fifteen years ago, during my first year at the Antwerp Academy. It was all about the beauty, the creativity, the preciousness, and the dream. In times of reflection, we are bound to question our essence. Since my arrival at Y/Project in 2014, we have pushed the boundaries of creativity and have celebrated eclecticism and versatility. Our catwalks represent a diversity of many different people from many different backgrounds. The people we live and work with, the people with whom we share parties and metro rides. This melting pot is reflected through a variety of individual looks which are reinforced by the diversity of our collection plan. SS21 is about reinforcing our essence. Versatility in wearability is a constant connection point between the different typologies of our garments. One design can be worn in different ways, creating a different emotion. We encourage our customers to question themselves. How do we feel? How do we want to be perceived? The garment is conceived to prolong each singular emotion. There is no correct answer. As a result, even the most basic Y/Project piece has a pronounced design twist and we are often seen as a think tank of ideas. Balancing between low and high; mixing in designs of no commercial value, with the sole meaning of creative expression and experimentation. We are privileged to work in a luxury business. We have the luxury of time to think, which entitles us a responsibility. Y/Project wants to take part in the change, building a better future.” – Glenn Martens
