For all of their collaborators, few have stood the test of time more than Y-3. Since it inception in the early 2000’s, adidas and Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto have been a fusing of minds. The mission? To create bespoke collections that aim to push the boundaries of the adidas archive.
Collaborations between high end fashion brands and sportswear giants aren’t anything new. In fact, over recent years they’ve become a thing of norm. However, Y-3 have been building this connection since their debut collection back in 2003 and have gone on to build a cult like following.
Y-3 always focus on innovation and materials which often led the way when it comes to new concepts like the Y-3 Qasa from 2013. A standout silhouette still to this day. The idea was to bring a contemporary approach to adidas’ archival Tubular technology. With that underfoot, the upper became a masterpiece of avant-garde inspiration. Premium comfort and a futuristic design paved the way for future examples of the model. Continuing the trend, they swiftly followed this up with the Y-3 PureBOOST (2014), Y-3 Run BOOST (2016) and the 4D Runner in (2018).
Now for their FW23 collection, the those avant-garde theme continues. This time, we even more recognisable silhouettes, concrete greys are met with bursts of yellows whilst exposed stitches and loose threads replace the iconic sidewall Three Stripes.
