While the menswear category has seen flourishes of promise in recent seasons with a handful of new designers raising the runway stakes, it is Glemaud’s studied use of bold color that seems particularly fresh. In fact, his palette has become the delineating treatment for his burgeoning label. “I look good in strong color so I always felt it would work for my menswear point of view, too,” he says. His knit pieces are especially vivid in the contrasting hues of cardigans against vests. “Dual” is also a word that Glemaud uses when expressing his philosophy. However, his signature sweaters are actually a single piece, the ingenious reworking wool or cashmere cardigans that have been deconstructed and rebuilt to include V-neck vests. The pieces have a vintage silhouette, relaxed without feeling sloppy, with soft shoulders, long hemlines, and fullness throughout the body.
