Yohji Yamamoto is one of fashion’s foremost and accomplished advocates of the color black. One of his philosophical musings on it has even become a widely shared image around the internet.
Yamaoto’s Y-3 line for Adidas has often followed this lead. The ultra-modern, high fashion interpretations of sneakers and sportswear can usually be found in the stark and elegant realm of black and white.
For the latest Y-3 collection, the classic black and white aesthetic is granted some colorful new company. Vivid blues, purples, and neon yellows, and even vibrant multi-colored prints are employed to great effect, to compliment yet, at the same time, shake up what people have come to expect from the Y-3 label.
Of course, the innovative, futuristic silhouettes are what really make Y-3 stand out. These shoes represent modernism functioning at its highest form, “less is more” made into a tangible, real life concept. The simple, clean forms let the Adidas technology do the heavy lifting, both functionally and aesthetically. This is expert design, no matter what colors are used.
