Belgian designer Glenn Martens, creative director of Y/PROJECT will present the new Fall/Winter 2019-20 menswear collection in Florence with a special event. Winner of last year’s prestigious Andam Grand Prize Award, Y/PROJECT is considered one of the most original voices on the contemporary fashion scene.

Glenn Martens has created with Y/PROJECT a new aesthetic language that is driven by contradictions”, says Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine Director of Communications and Special Events,” in which chic is combined with extravagance and eclectic references, while streetwear elements are enriched by historical and couture touches sometimes out of scale. A conceptual design, which has already entered into sync with the most advanced parts of the market. A designer who expresses an acute sense of humor, with a vision of fashion that is extremely personal, where there is room for the freedom to dress as you like, experiment and have fun – without raising barriers of any kind”.

Florence’s exquisite heritage has been a never-ending source of fascination to me. I am extremely honored to have been asked to show Y/Project at Pitti Uomo, in the core of this mythical city”, says Glenn Martens, designer of Y/Project.
