Y-3 S/S 11

Posted by Stephan Moskovic | September 17th, 2010

Yohji Yamamoto is one of fashion’s rockstars, so it is only fitting that he turn out a Y-3 collection that nods to the vibrance and insouciance of today’s music scene. With the Armory serving as the ultimate venue, Yamamoto presented a collection tailored to the kind of kids who find themselves at festivals and in underground clubs. On the runway cropped tops and baggy silhouettes featured prominently, but structured elements like classic leather jackets for boys and sharp fitted blazers for girls kept the look clean. The addition of goth lip color by Pat McGrath and gravity defying hairstyles created by Eugene Souleiman enhanced the punk undercurrent of the clothes, as did the pork pie hats and layered silver chains that served as accessories. As always, the trademark black / white / grey color scheme and inventive interpretations of the striped logo were important elements, but the jolts of red, blue and green created the most memorable moments. The fiery leggings and cardigan combo on Ajak was an absolute show stopper, audience reaction to it could be heard, even over the booming soundtrack provided by band, Duke Spirit. Perhaps the evening’s biggest treat though, was the wide array of distinctive footwear, guaranteed to keep Y-3 enthusiasts (and sneaker obsessives everywhere) very happy.

    woow, all the models look like they walked straight out from a starve-camp(they probably did). But the clothes are cool, the girl-collection is better than the boys’, which is boring.
