Having debuted his eponymous Spring/Summer 2019 collection just a few days ago, Yohji Yamamoto made a sophomore appearance on the Paris Fashion Week catwalk with Y-3‘s latest range.

Held at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs located in the Palais du Louvre’s western wing, the collection featured all of the usual sartorial touchstones present in the Japanese designer’s adidas-collaborated imprint: monochromatic color schemes, billowing silhouettes and sport-luxe fabrics. Inspired by Yamamoto’s fascination with ”air between the body” (according to the press notes), the collection’s ultra-sleek airiness was achieved via crosscutting tech-forward fabrics such as GORE-TEX®, light nylon, engineered patchwork mesh, tech cotton, Adizero and elastane, permitting reversible wear and compact storage. Furthermore, SS19 introduced a new take on Y-3’s signature logo by incorporating humorous (in Yamamoto’s language) skull and heart motifs.

On the footwear front, the collection welcomed a new silhouette dubbed the Raito Racer, which features BOOST technology, a translucent outsole, and Primeknit upper, alongside updated versions of the Kaiwa, Kasabaru and Y-3 Runner 4D. Stay tuned for more details on these sneakers.

Take a look at Y-3’s SS19 collection in full above and be sure to follow Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 for the latest coverage this season.
