When I started my footwear journey in Y-3 last summer, I wasn’t expecting to start working on accessories and even more, designing them. But sometimes opportunities appear and it’s good to be challenged to do something different and learn new things during the process.
Y-3 combines luxury activewear with technical detailing and innovative modern design.
CH1 Reflective Waistbag is born with keeping running and runners in mind: the slim and sleek shape of the main bag is inspired by running belts. Its reflective look will ensure you are visible in low-light conditions and adjustable strap with Fidlock buckle makes the fit versatile. By adding detachable pouch with zip-fastening closure and mesh back pocket and you will get extra space for all your important belongings.
“For 20 years, Yohji Yamamoto has been lending his eye to Adidas in the form of the Y-3 collection. Over that time, Yamamoto has built almost every type of athletic-casual garment. Because he was so early to ink a partnership with a sportstyle brand, few give him any credit—or at least not as much as he deserves. Back after a short hiatus, Y-3 has returned to fashion week. Inspired by the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the fall 2020 collection fuses together traditional sport elements with a lifestyle appeal.
Only Yamamoto isn’t drawing from soccer shorts and basketball jerseys like other designers. The sports he cites throughout his men’s and women’s collections are: archery, urban night running, fencing, judo, BMX, and gymnastics. “In many ways, the collection symbolizes the coming together of seemingly disparate worlds, as our partnership has always advocated for, by pioneering, the connection between tailoring and sportswear,” Mr. Yamamoto wrote over email. Unlike the Olympic athletes who inspired him, Yamamoto has nothing to prove—he’s already a master. But it’s exciting to watch him continue to explore and grow.” (vogue.com)
