Not standard fare from Victor Glemaud, his fall collection is quite edgy and somewhat intimidating. The shoes appear to be doc martin's and the pants are almost all surprisingly black. His double cardigan is still here, though paired with fingertipless gloves. Some of the tighter articles make the models look like brawlers. I don't mind this season, it shows another side of Victor and that he's willing to try different things.
The usually effusive Victor Glemaud described his new collection as "aggressive"—that fact was amply reinforced by the print he chose to adorn several of his knits: a buzzing and crawling collection of flies and ants, so thick they looked like static on a TV screen. Taken from a tile Glemaud discovered in a home store in London, the print inspired the rest of the collection, where many of the solid knits looked artfully moth-eaten. "I've worn too much yellow in the winter," the designer quipped, explaining the somber color palette, which was dominated by grays. "We're not in those times anymore." True enough, but those gold buttons were still there, as were waffle knits in hazard orange and rich purples, which helped break the mood. — Josh PeskowitzOriginally Posted by men.style.com
