After launching the sub-label last summer, Yohji Yamamoto and adidas have reunited for the second “YY EXCLUSIVE” launch. The sub-label is distinct from Y-3 and mostly sees Yamamoto upgrading adidas staples, which holds true for the new collection of apparel and footwear.
This drop comprises the “YY WINDBREAKER,” “YY PANTS” and “YY SC PREMIERE” sneaker, the latter of which revamps the low-key archive silhouette in a trio of muted colorways fitted with branded leather tags. Black, white/black and black/red iterations are offered alongside a selection of lightweight polyamide tracksuits that feature two-way zippers, raglan sleeves, contrast piping and Yamamoto’s signature emblazoned on the outside. His portrait is woven inside.
Expect the latest YY Exclusive drop goes live on THE SHOP Yohji Yamamoto’s site July 17 with all three “YY SC PREMIERE” sneakers. The “YY WINDBREAKER” and “YY PANTS” will launch in August at the same website and Japanese retailers.
Meanwhile, Yamamoto recently issued a moody SS21 lookbook during Digital Paris Fashion Week.
