Y-3 – Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear Collection

By - September 10th, 2013

It’s prismatic. It’s ombré. And in Yohji’s Yamamoto‘s world, one might even say it’s blushing. The Y-3 Spring/Summer 2014 Collection showcases a wardrobe that plays with hyper-pigmentation as much as it does with Yamamoto‘s onyx-black predisposition. Splashed against sportswear canvases of long-sleeved white shirts, track jackets (sans the hoodie), windbreakers, and even briefs is a gradient haze of purple, pink, blue, green, and yellow. Tokyo’s master of design adopts oversized silhouettes for the upcoming season but makes sure to cinch the ends with the functional bungee cord. However, never one to abandon the Y-3 trademark aesthetic, the series employs the three black stripes and places them across socks,  chests, and even along sleeves– a graceful touch that marks the collection’s maker to a T. Kudos to Yamamoto for a job well done, again.
