This show was one of the plenty which I was really excited about. Y/Project is a new thing, but they super ultra long jeans already gained a lot of attention. I would lie if I said there’s nothing common with Vetements or Off-White in it. There is, first and foremost it’s kinda weird, with seemingly non matching things put on the models, but they make it on a less raw and more artsy level somehow.
There is a lot of things going on here (and it’s not even the whole collection) from every kind of fabrics (fur, silk, tweed, cotton, wool, denim, leather, corduroy, tulle, we have everything) to many prints and even more more gentle and strange colours, but it works. It works, I guess, because there’s some kind of harmony here.
Maybe we wouldn’t match a silk slip dress with check tweed pants, a vintage like fur coat and snake skin booties in one outfit, but what if this designer told us they’re all neutrals. You see, it’s a totally different thing, I’m convinced already and would wear it for sure, ok, maybe not the fur coat but everything else. 🙂
And then I haven’t mentioned the smaller details like the crystal spiral earrings and sandal straps all the way up on the legs, the multi buckle extra long belt, the lace details, the multiple cuffed jeans, or that leather thing which I cannot decide on whether it’s a skirt or trousers. Probably both, but I’m still intrigued how it works.
Personally I’m happy more and more brands as Vetements emerge. Competition is always a good thing, you know. 🙂 Me likey! You?
