Y-3 FW2015/16, 26 January 2015
Air stream and 'Everything's Under Control' prints at Y-3's aviation/space travel inspired FW15/16 collection
The new Y-3 collection Fall/Winter 2015/16 (men's and women's wear) was presented on 25 January during Paris Men's Fashion Week.
Y-3 co-founder (Y stands for Yohji Yamamoto, 3 for the three stripes of adidas) and artistic director Yohji Yamamoto was inspired by the pioneers of aviation like Amelia Earhart and outlooks into the future of space travels for broadening horizons. Yamamoto combines classical fabrics like wool flannel, cotton twill with newer materials such as Tyvek (invented by Dupont in the 1960s) or Neoprene for the collection of men's and women's wear which appears in flight outfit style of the 1930s merged with sportswear of the new millennium.
