Y-3 - New York Spring 2010
(NEW YORK) Yohji Yamamoto celebrated his trademark billowy silhouette in his latest collection for Y-3, but there were plenty of unexpected elements peppered throughout the runway. An array of mesh netting in black and white underscored the designs collegiate athleticism. Yamamoto's reinterpretation of the soccer pinnie elevated gym class attire to heights it never dreamed of reaching. Pops of safety cone orange and neon pink gave the pieces a joyous, youthful sensibility. At the show's close, Yamamoto took the stage (his second time ever!) and kicked a soccer ball into a net--the perfect punctuation for such an animated collection.
