Glenn Martens Celebrates Diesel With Red Tag Capsule

MILAN — Renzo Rosso is banking on hot young designer Glenn Martens to conceive an equally sizzling capsule collection for the Diesel Red Tag label.
“Glenn comes from Belgian training, so he has this practical-yet-surreal, Margiela-like sense,” said Rosso, whose group OTB also controls Maison Margiela, Marni, Paula Cademartori, Viktor & Rolf, Staff International and Brave Kid, in addition to Diesel. “But then he’s young and modern, and knows how to appeal to a global, educated consumer, while simultaneously being able to experiment with denim.”
Rosso may be an innovative and unconventional entrepreneur, who breaks with tradition, but he also comes prepared. “He’s been following me for three years, I’ve been told, and watching what I have been doing,” Martens said during an interview ahead of the presentation in Milan, scheduled on June 16. The Belgian designer, who is creative director of the Paris-based Y/Project label, which scooped up the 2017 ANDAM Grand Prize, made fashion fame with his deconstructed denim that can be ruched or folded back to create a wider effect.
“This is a new and fun way to celebrate Diesel, this amazing brand and its 40th anniversary,” Martens said of the Red Tag concept of capsules in collaboration with a series of edgy designers. The

Samantha Bee and Glenn Beck Remained Civil During Their Very Weird Interview

They’re almost seeing eye-to-eye.

SHOPPING NEWS UPDATE:


Merry Christmas, From Samantha Bee And Glenn Beck

Samantha Bee and Glenn Beck will appear together on Monday night’s “Full Frontal” for a conversation brought to us by Christmas and Donald Trump’s election. 

It’s a highly unlikely alliance made by the outspoken liberal late-night host and the outspoken conservative radio commenter, both outfitted in cheery Christmas sweaters in two teasers released over the weekend.

“Is this how you pictured end times?” Bee asks in one clip.

While the two seem to have little in common, the 2016 presidential election cycle has actually nudged Beck away from the conservative fringe he’d long occupied.

Although he has said that Hillary Clinton is “cyanide” and “a stereotypical bitch” with a “vocal range” that upsets him, Beck has consistently used his platform to speak strongly against Trump and “spooky” alt-right white nationalists. Beck also spoke out to praise Michelle Obama’s anti-Trump speech in October after years of harshly criticizing her husband, President Obama, whom Beck has called a racist. He now regrets that insult, he told The New Yorker; in September, The New York Times ran an opinion piece written by Beck encouraging support for the Black Lives Matter movement. The Atlantic published a feature on him in its January-February issue titled “Glenn Beck’s Regrets.”

Perhaps Bee will get to the root of Beck’s apparent change of heart ― or maybe they’ll just model some awesome Christmas sweaters.

We’ll find out Monday night.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” airs Mondays at 10:30 ET on TBS.

Glenn Martens’ Y/Project Offers New Take on Engineered Romanticism

As a kid growing up in the historic, picturesque city of Bruges, Y/Project’s Glenn Martens developed an obsession with classical beauty. Later — once thoroughly schooled in the subject — he gravitated toward elements of local culture bordering on bad taste. After all, said Martens in an interview in his new digs on Paris’ Rue de Paradis — a hip but gritty street that looks nothing like its name — among Bruges’ museums filled with Flemish old masters were frites stands with aggressive neon lights and super-kitsch chocolate shops.
The duality storyline lives on in Martens’ collections, with the designer tumbling together disparate references from classical tailoring to streetwear to offbeat historical references. For spring, there’s a bit of a “pirate” thing going on, “something a bit more romantic,” alongside nods to his coming-of-age-decade: the Nineties.
For Martens, it’s all about freedom and eclecticism. Among the silhouettes: trashed-up club kid; “Dynasty”-style bustier cocktail dresses; tongue-in-cheek sexy denim cut with Y-shaped crotches and chaplike legs, and “haute-couture-y” crushed velvet dresses. Serving as rigging systems, cufflink configurations on sleeves and superlong jeans are used to create exaggerated ruching, while removable sleeves, tops and dress panels in colored silk mousseline or crushed velvet clip onto
