We get a first look from the Y-3 Fall/Winter 2010 Collection. 20 men’s key looks were revealed at the Paris presentation giving an exclusive first glimpse at the Autumn / Winter range. For the coming season, Yohji Yamamoto and adidas are inspired by the tension of two opposite aesthetic ideals: TRADITION vs. FUTURE; juxtaposing heritage and classic values with an extreme futuristic expression.
This idea is illustrated through the use of a traditional color palette of charcoal grey, navy, black and white juxtaposed by strong pop colors of kelly green, purple and sapphire with traditional silhouettes done up in technically advanced fabrics. Stand out pieces include heavy knit fitted cardigans and blazers, wool flannel checked track pants and jackets, down jackets reinforced with Kevlar fabrics, jackets made from merino cashmere mixed with functional nylons, oversized wide gauge pull over sweaters and cardigans, oversized cropped pants, heavy wool knit leggings & cardigans as well as pea coats made of soft shearling leather.
Footwear provides a further example of this season’s theme where traditional sporting styles are highlighted by silver, bright purple and orange color accents that pop and push the futuristic idea further.
Many more looks from the Y-3 Fall/Winter 2010 range follow after the jump.
