Following his critically acclaimed Fall Winter 2019 campaign earlier this summer, Yohji Yamamoto and adidas are back with yet another instalment to the collection. Paying homage to the idea of “contrast and duality“, this Y-3 collection is, hands down, one of the Japanese designer’s best ones yet.
To create the latest season, Yamamoto and the Three Stripes isolated three decades critical to each other’s development, including the ’70s, the ’80s, and the ’90s. Through this, they were able to pull references from each of these eras, allowing them to edit, alter, adapt, and remake silhouettes, shapes, colourways, and fabrics. This resulted in a wide range of simple, striking, and stealthy pieces that are all emblazoned with the iconic “adidas Y-3” logo and Yamamoto’s signature.
To add to this, the Y-3 Kyoi Trail silhouette will also be making its debut. An avant-garde take of the classic trail shoe, the upper is made from a combination of textile and leather, while an extremely chunky midsole and exaggerating treading makes these perfect for the cold, wet, and drizzly months ahead.
If you need the Y-3 Fall Winter 2019 collection in your life, then expected it to launch on September 19th at Y-3 flagship stores, Y-3.com, and select retailers worldwide.
