In Paris, in the midst of presenting their Autumn/Winter 2016 runway show season this past January, the Y-3 team put together two short films featuring interviews with Yohji Yamamoto and Lawrence Midwood, Y-3's Senior Design Director. In addition to their individual perspectives and unfiltered, personal insights, the films also shed light on how Yamamoto and Midwood come together to create a unique vision for the brand season after season. For the AW16 collection, hitting stores now, Midwood discloses that the collection "definitely marks the style of a new phase." He continues, "Yohji is never really satisfied to stay in one place and is constantly challenging us to keep moving. So this season, as ever, is about sport, but with a bit of a harder industrial and pared down aesthetic." Enjoy the films below.
