With Paris Fashion Week drawing to a close, OG sports-luxe label Y-3 unveiled its Fall/Winter 2016 collection in a cramped industrial space in the city's 11th arrondissement. Mixing both men's and women's looks, the brand stayed committed to Yohji Yamamoto's vision of sportswear - that means tons of layering, unorthodox garments and drapey, flowing silhouettes.
This being a Y-3 collection, footwear of course played a big part, with an onslaught of the brand's ever-popular sneakers - some of which were paired with adidas's Futurecraft 3D-printed sole technology. The Qasa was reissued in numerous versions - one with an elastic cross-strap; one as a sneakerboot hybrid. Many women's options sported split sole units, too.
In terms of clothing, Y-3 very much stuck to its guns. Outerwear pieces were executed in bizarre, hybrid cuts - was that a biker jacket or an anorak? - while removable panels, zippers and taped seams were placed on a ton of garments, too.
