Glenn Martens Is Named Diesel’s Creative Director

Glenn Martens Is Named Diesel’s Creative Director

Y/Project designer Glenn Martens has a way with denim, contorting it into plunging V-front jeans and oversize double-lapel jackets. Today, he’s taking his commitment to the material to a new level with a new gig in fashion: the creative director of Diesel. “I am extremely honored and excited to join the Diesel family,” Martens said in a release. “Synonymous with radicality, honesty, and optimism, Diesel helped shape the way we see the future. Its unique voice has made it an undeniable icon. Today, more than ever, I feel the need to celebrate these founding values, to build bridges through a message of hope.”

The Belgian designer is no stranger to the Diesel universe. In 2018, he collaborated with the brand as a part of its Red Tag Project, creating a fashion show on the streets of Paris that saw denim and leather warped into draped button-downs and bootcut trousers. (Other collaborators of the Red Tag Project include Hood by Air’s Shayne Oliver, A-Cold-Wall*, and Readymade.) The year before, Martens won the ANDAM Prize with Y/Project, an award also supported by Diesel owner Only The Brave.  He was awarded a special prize by ANDAM again in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic alongside fellow former winner Marine Serre.

Diesel Names Y/Project’s Glenn Martens as Creative Director | News & Analysis

Diesel Names Y/Project’s Glenn Martens as Creative Director | News & Analysis

PARIS, France — Italian jeans brand Diesel has named Y/Project designer Glenn Martens as its creative director. 

Martens will remain in place at the helm of Y/Project, the independent Paris label known for its ruched silhouettes and avant-garde denim, an OTB spokesperson said.

Diesel, the flagship brand of Italian entrepreneur Renzo Rosso‘s OTB fashion group, has struggled to reposition itself as mall traffic sputtered and demand for premium denim dried up in recent years. The decline has required Rosso to refocus his energies on Diesel after expanding into luxury holdings like Maison Martin Margiela and Marni.

After declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy at its US division, Diesel returned to growth in 2019, contributing to a 6.6 percent increase in OTB’s sales which hit €1.53 billion ($1.8 billion). The denim brand also tapped a new CEO, Massimo Piombini, this year.

Diesel has previously collaborated with Martens, a winner of France’s Andam fashion prize, for its Red Tag line. His appointment is effective immediately and marks the next step in the company’s come-back plans.

“Ever since I met Glenn in 2017 I saw his experience grow and his talent cement,” Rosso said in a statement. “I am happy to now see him take the helm of Diesel, where he will marry his design vision with the iconoclastic values of this unique brand.”
