Fluid shapes and oversized designs define Y/Project’s Fall Winter 2021 collection. The show, directed by Grégoire Dyer, was set and recorded in what looked like an empty warehouse, with an ample stage in lieu of the traditional runway, where models circulated all at once following arrow paths taped to the floor. The soundtrack transitioned from an overlap of opera music to an electronic beat that amplified the combination of simultaneous – yet minutely calculated – stimuli.

The new collection emphasizes the combination of various pieces into one, as seen on the camo parka that blends with a dress, along with the repurposing of certain parts of the garment: hoods are reimagined as collars and sweater collars become shoulder details, even giving it a melting look.

Fluidity is also a highlight on ruffled shirts, dresses, and jackets that look like they were twirled by hand and remained like that forever. The brand’s signature takes on proportions are present throughout the entire collection, with oversized coats, suits, and scarves.

Most of the creations come in neutral grey, beige, and even black tones, with colorful pops materialized in some designs such as a long burgundy velvet dress, a neon pink ensemble, and pastel blue pieces. Denim also has its moment with draped jackets, pants, and cowboy boots.

Patterned shirts and scarves feature floral and chain motifs, while accessories include oversized flower and “Y”-shaped earrings. Handbags also come with twisted and draped details. This season marked the merger of the brand's men's and women's wear into one collection, which will be presented on Paris Men's Fashion Week from now on.
