Despite having worked in the industry in multiple roles since his teens, Glemaud (am I right in saying this?) has remained somewhat off-the-radar regarding the international scene. I’ve seen him and his work featured in US-based publications like Interview, Refinery29 and VMan but his presence in mags over the water doesn’t seem to be as felt. So it was all the more pleasurable when I happened upon his collection of school-boy/Alain Delon-inspired casualwear.
Geometric shapes and a healthy dose of each of the primaries made for sweaters reminiscent of crayon-on-sugar paper masterpieces, only with a distinctly sophisticated twist. The vintage Gucci loafers (the Delon reference…) and cuffed Levis re-emphasized the ‘leisurely luxury’ slant of the whole thing. Most noteworthy though were the cardigans with trompe l’oeil enhancements: what appeared to be two cardigans layered was in fact another panel of fabric stitched on front. Innovation need not always be a creative ruckus of overt proportion-play and shimmering fabrics.
