Victor Glemaud has introduced a new collection of knitwear inspired by artist Lucio Fontana. The launch was marked with a digital and guerilla marketing campaign, featuring images of models Riley Montana and Michael Lockley on Instagram @glemaud and on posters across downtown New York City. The collection is available exclusively at the Line in New York and Los Angeles and at theline.com.
The Victor Glemaud collection debuted in 2006 and since then has reached new customer bases while garnering press accolades, from WWD and Vogue to the New York Times and Senken Shimbun. In August 2008, Glemaud launched limited edition women’s cardigans at Henri Bendel — they sold out within weeks.
Glemaud was born in Haiti and moved to the U.S. at age 3. While studying at FIT, he began his career in fashion as a design assistant to Patrick Robinson. Glemaud joined KCD in 2000, working as a publicist in New York and Paris for brands including Versace, Marc Jacobs and Helmut Lang.
In 2005, Glemaud was ready to return to design, coinciding with his mentor Patrick Robinson taking over as Paco Rabanne’s artistic director. Glemaud was named Womenswear Design Advisor at Rabanne, responsible for design concept development, global trend research and overall brand and store imaging. He then went to Tommy Hilfiger as Style Director.
Glemaud is a trusted advisor in the retail and entertainment communities, having collaborated with Disney, Quiksilver, Earnest Sewn and Mackintosh over the years.
He currently lives in New York City.
