Y-3’s Superhero Inspired Debut At Paris Fashion Week
Making Y-3’s Paris Fashion Week debut, Yohji Yamamoto presented the adidas collaboration’s fall/winter 2014/2015 collection in Couvent des Cordeliers. Yamamoto explained that he wanted to pay homage to the couturiers of the 60’s and infuse their spirit into the collection, and was also thinking clothing superheroes wear. He brought these two worlds together for his collection, “cut for an active and fighting life style”.
Bold primaries such as red, yellow and cobalt blue are mixed with black and army green in the sport-chic collection for both men and women, and it was presented in a black and white setting with a neon light backdrop as the models walked the runway to superhero music themes.
Both the men’s and women’s clothing fit perfectly together, with some contrasting each other and others sharing uniformity, and as a fan of superheroes and comic books, a lot of the designs made me think of the X-Men over the years and how some could wear these styles out in combat or while training in their Danger Room.
Before I totally geek out and pick superheroes to wear each of these looks, see the full Y-3 collection below:
