Y-3 Fall 2013: Athletic wear turned Yohji wear

New Yorkers mourning the demise of Yohji Yamamoto’s flagship store need not fret: as the Japanese designer’s collaboration with Adidas continues into its 10th year, the popular Y-3 label continues its departure from sportswear into Yohji-wear.

Staged in an abandoned warehouse in the Lower East Side, Yamamoto’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection appeared almost ethereal, with models emerging from clouds of haze, dust and smoke. Amid the expected black looks with asymmetrical cuts, shocks of bright orange and green appeared in scarves, dress shirts, prints and even along the soles of shoes.  Knee-length baggy shorts and combination windbreaker/jackets were the order of the day for men, while highlights for the women included stylish platform sneakers and trench coats with voluminous long skirts.
