The Fall 2021 line, titled “Ode to Joy,” was inspired by New York City; the brand cites its taxi cabs and chain-link fences, specifically, as references, which translate into the black, white, yellow and grey fabrics seen throughout. (Fittingly, Glemaud designed a taxi-print knit face mask in partnership with The RealReal for New York’s “Mask Up” campaign late last year.) An image the designer snapped of a woman “with long beaded braids and a bright yellow graphic T-shirt” also informed some of the patterns.
With his latest, Glemaud aimed “to reimagine what knitwear could do — for today’s day and age,” according to a press release. That means there are some key technical innovations for Fall 2021, including “a patchwork knit jacquard designed as a single piece with no linking” and a pinstripe fabric made from cotton cashmere and recycled rayon stripe.
This season, Glemaud also collaborated with Nigerian accessories brand Shekudo on two shoes, a slingback ($345) and an open-back clog ($325) — his first foray into footwear. Both styles are available for purchase now on The RealReal.
