Sport/ Fashion fusion

This season, Yohji Yamamoto and adidas explored an intellectual approach to the beautiful game of soccer. The show included exaggerated silhouettes, loose-cut trousers, and abstract flag motifs in the colorways of eight soccer federations sponsored by adidas: South Africa, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Argentina, France, and Russia. Soccer shorts were cut long and extra wide, oversized plaid shirts skimmed the knees, and laser-cut jersey tube dresses emphasized an idea of light, transparency, and movement. The collection paired the wit and intellect of Mr. Yamamoto with the innovation of adidas. Y-3 is first in footwear, and the show displayed a range of striking limited-edition trainers in the classic Field style, updated with an exaggerated removable tongue and bold, graphic colorways inspired by the flags of each country.
