Ten years ago, Yohji Yamamoto and adidas combined to create something that was brand new to the fashion world: a sport-based label designed by a high-end designer. Now, after surviving financial difficulties and near bankruptcy, Y-3 continues to stride forward with its new 2012 fall/winter collection. What we see is a move away from the sportswear-inclined items of the past with a much more gritty and urban look to the season. Leopard print, something that always seems to make an appearance in adidas collaborations, manages to stay very obvious, along with a range of olive drab militaristic-styled outerwear, preppy knitwear, and an interestingly designed suit. Footwear is also still prominent, with nine different creations set for release.
