The future of sportswear is now here and we can thank legendary designer Yohji Yamamoto for ushering in a new age. His Y-3 collaboration with Adidas has been a favorite for quite sometime. Mixing luxury and high performance design and fabrics with the iconic brand, Yamamoto has now unleashed something slightly different on the world. It is called Y-3 Sport.
This collection is focused on performance. The clothes and accessories take things to new heights with all weather gear including reflective patterns, rainproof jackets and shoes that are created for any terrain you may encounter. The designs are simply from the future and you can expect interesting cuts, subtle detailing and materials that use the latest technology. We love the men's "Future Craft Midlayer", which is a jacket based on the Adidas Daybreaker hoody but elongated and fitted for a nicer silhouette, plus instead of french terry, Y-3 uses "climalite" jersey offering both quick drying and moisture management. First stitched for durability and then bonded to offer maximum comfort and durability including pockets, zips and media integration.
Womenswear gets the same treatment, offering innovative designs with cutting edge features. For instance, the Y-3 Sport Fine Knit top explores new knitting techniques. Y-3 discovered a lesser-used circular knit machine with limited capability yet far better handfeel and drape. The result is a beautifully durable piece that is both elegant yet practical. Also included in the collection are amazing bags that are designed to fit close to the body and maximize durability all while smartly integrating your devices.
Whether its avant-garde couture or high performance sportswear, Yohji Yamamoto always seems to get it right. Y-3 Sport is no exception with introducing brand new technologies and a futuristic design aesthetic. We pretty much want every single item and hope to see more from Y-3 Sport in the years to come.
