Off the heels of the Y-3 RUNNER 4D II sneakers released a few months back,
This season’s collection brings to light archive pieces from both labels Yohji Yamamoto and adidas, dusting off garments from the beginning of the ’70s all the way to the ’90s. Yamamoto’s design language is enriched with adidas technology, adding functionality to billowing garments painted in black. Featured pieces include varsity-inspired shirts, baseball shirts with “YOHJI” insignia, coach jackets, long track jackets, nylon pants, muted parkas as well as various footwear molds.
Spotlighting the range is the Y-3 Yuben Low that takes cues from ’70s low-top courts. Complete with a crisp white sole, Yamamoto’s signature is thinly etched on the sidewalls, while Y-3 branding is placed at the tongue – the sneakers come in either black or white. Another highlight is the Y-3 Kaiwa, slathered in a triple-black colorway. Neoprene uppers, leather panels and a chunky midsole is complemented by contrasting white Y-3 branding. Other garments like the elongated track jacket, logo knitwear and puffers round up the concise assemblage.
The Y-3 FW19 Collection will be available on June 20 at y-3.com and global Y-3 flagship stores.
