Glenn Martens – Autumn / Winter 2012 – 2013

The melancholic elegance of devotional Flemish painting meets the clean lines of Belgian design into Glenn Martens‘ debut collection. The designer presented his creations during Paris Fashion Week, in a dark and intimate loft space, far from the city’s hectic times. The models were like the elegant madonnas of Hans Memling and Jan Van‘s triptychs, marching in strict and linear clothes while a baroque music was playing. The pleated column organza dresses were highly shaped but not too rigid, enhancing the graphic vertical cuts. In a game of wide and elongated silhouettes, the deconstructed jackets were paired with clerical inspired tunics and knitwear pieces in ethical recycled wool; while the metallic zippers and the platform sneakers added a sporty look to the collection. Glenn Martens gave an extremely original character to the minimalist aesthetic, blending classic elements with a fresh contemporary taste.
