Y-3, the long-running collaborative venture between sportswear giant adidas and legendary Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, refines its focus on high-tech performancewear with Y-3 SPORT. Exploring the untapped possibilities at the intersection of high-end fashion and athletic apparel, the diffusion line takes Yamamoto’s inimitable design aesthetic into brave new areas. Y-3 SPORT makes full use of up-to-the-minute innovations from adidas’s robust research and development infrastructure, deploying improved Boost cushioning, lightweight adizero, Primeknit fabric, and fatigue-reducing Techfit technologies to ensure function matches form. The collaboration is all the more compelling given Yamamoto’s infamous aversion to science and its place in contemporary society, and yet his newest foray is doing no less than advancing the acceptance of new, refined technologies into the high fashion canon. Cutting through the ornamental tendencies of metropolitan fashions, the line’s futuristic silhouettes wear cleanly and confidently on the street, giving design-conscious athletes new unmatched options.
