Considering Victor Glemaud’s first collection was only Spring/Summer 2007, he’s garnered a remarkable amount of attention in a very short time. It’s no coincidence that he was a publicist before he moved into the fashion world, although he also worked as a design advisor for Paco Rabanne for a year before opening his own line in July 2006.
The sleepwear influence dominates Glemaud’s S/S 08 range with pyjama-like shirts, shoes that could be mistaken for slippers, layered cardigans and colourful smart shorts. The range is also designed with hot weather in mind – you’d be surprised at how many designers don’t do this – so the materials are light and airy. Stockists are pretty hard to find at the moment, especially ones that supply to the EU. For now, you’ll have to do with this interview on Glemaud’s essential items.
