Count Prince Jarl Alexandre Alé de Basseville, EYES IN Corporation's President of International Affairs, attended the Y Project of Paris Fashion Week, Men's Fashions. Here are the designs which caught his eye.
With its trans-seasonal pieces, strong tailoring and unisex models, Y Project’s leitmotifs are fresh looks that are both sophisticated and urban.
EYES IN Magazine's Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk reviewed the designs from New York:
"Jarl Alexandre Alé de Basseville already predicted a while back that for men's fashion to get the similar attention as the women's fashion world it would not hurt, if a fashion designer would come up with an unisex look. No need to say more that Y Project seemed to have followed his advice with very interesting designs as a result. I would have loved to have seen Y Project taking it one step further into making designs for men more inspired by the women's shapes of garments. Hopefully next season. As we all live with "meanings" and "symbols" the unisex look could be the start of "literally" turning the tables around in men's and women's fashion in where seeking borders to each sexes could bring out the most "meaningful or symbolic man look" into a very feminine design and vice versa. Let's see. Exciting!"

Since 2010, Y Project has been proposing menswear that bridges a technical know-how and emotional atmospheres into a straightforward look.
Culminating in architectural cuts that boast a comfortable fit, the foundation of Y Project resides and relies on transcendent versatility. Belgian designer Glenn Martens, an Antwerp graduate who acquired his experience with Bruno Pieters and assisted Yohan Serfaty at the launch of his label among others, has been carrying on in the spirit of Y/Project since September 2013.
Additionally to the menswear, Martens has spun out his late mentor’s style and introduced a full-fledged and long anticipated women’s collection.
Graphic tailoring woven into structural elegance, experimentations with sculptural draping, prints and origami techniques characterize the designs of the Men and Women collections.
