Y/PROJECT and FILA Launch Spring/Summer '22 Collaborative Collection
(FILA Luxembourg S.à r.l.) - Y/PROJECT x FILA first debuted on the Paris Fashion Week runway, as part of the Y/PROJECT Spring/Summer ’22 collection. The capsule, which consists of men’s and women’s apparel, accessories and footwear, is now available.
Since the appointment of Glenn Martens as Creative Director in 2013, the Paris based label Y/PROJECT has been carving out a niche of its own, combining intricate construction with inventive, playful detailing. Having won the renowned ANDAM Grand Prize twice in 2017 and 2020, Y/PROJECT continues to grow as one of the most original voices in contemporary fashion.
The Y/PROJECT x FILA collaboration marks the marriage of two identities, resulting in a unique collection that fuses the design aesthetic of both brands. Glenn Martens incorporated a warped Y/PROJECT twist to FILA staples such as t-shirts, hoodies, polo dresses, and windbreakers, as well as caps, sneakers, weekend totes, and tennis bags. Each piece is versatile, and characterized by details that allow the wearer to make it their own. Among those defining features are double collars, strategically placed snap buttons, asymmetrical buttoning, double sweats, and a shoulder strap that is meant to look caught in the wind. The collection exudes a bold streetwear feel that is made even more unique by the graphic play of juxtaposed logos.
The Y/PROJECT x FILA capsule collection is currently available at YPROJECT.FR and select retailers worldwide.
