Japanese master tailor Yohji Yamamoto has released the SS19 capsule from his Y-3 collaboration with adidas.
The collection, named the ‘Yohji Love Capsule’, features Yamamoto’s signature hand-painted artwork across several pieces of apparel, accessories, and footwear. The whole collection is available in black on white or white on black, and standouts include the tees, based on the California Tee from the adidas Originals archive. They’re magnificent.
Other notable pieces include the two jackets, once again coming from an adidas Originals classic, the Firebird. Everything in the collection consistently features a graphic with the words, “Love, Yohji Yamamoto”, all the way down to the engineered sports socks.
Yamamoto has gone hard on the footwear, bringing in the Y-3 YOHJI SUPER as a re-up of the classic adidas Superstar 80s, which bears the graphic across the upper. Accessories in the collection include a backpack, drawstring tote, and cotton cap.
The Y-3 SS19 collection will be available at Y-3 flagship stores and Y-3.com on April 11th.
