Static Electricity

New York…Victor Glemaud

One of New York’s emerging young designers, Victor Glemaud, wanted to do a collection that he described as “aggressive.”  One can only imagine the interesting dreams Glemaud has had lately, because his print of choice looked like a creeping, buzzing army of flies and insects. Think of it as the nightmarish twin of Liberty of London’s colorful and happy prints. At a distance, the pattern (which adorned everything from sweaters to scarves) looked a bit like the static “snow” that shows up on the television when channels go out. Some of the knits had subtle, “moth-eaten” holes to give texture and added interest. A turtleneck had a paneled cable knit effect, and layers were slim and cropped. There were almost no optimistic colors like other collections as of late, instead focusing on simply black, grey and white. Keep an eye on Glemaud and his novel approach to the classics in the seasons ahead.
