Y3 by Yamamoto

New York:
Yohji Yamamoto showed a collection heavy on unusual, if basic, athletic garments, spiced up by the occasional blazer or work-appropriate trouser. Innovative shoe and garment constructions, like an elastic closure trainer or sleeveless trench coat, had futuristic undertones, and helped inject personality into the collection. Solid black was key, though the designer showed an outlandish checkerboard suit, as well as a number of scoop-necked tartan tops and a couple of heavily-scribbled graphic t-shirts peaking out from beneath jackets. Overall, this offering from Y3 maintained the brand’s identity with a well-edited selection of sporty garments that transcend the limitations of workout apparel.  —Andrew Luecke
