Yohji Yamamoto's high-end "everyday" ready-to-wear brand Y's returned to the runway after a five year hiatus this weekend in Tokyo to present its Fall/Winter 2019 lineup.

The show, which was actually divided into two shows, featured a capsule collection with Italian luxury brand Alcantara. "The show's design concept inherits Y's philosophy as well as a seasonal theme. The external nature of the theme is created by mixing multiple elements. Alcantara's futuristic material is a key element of Y's philosophy, where its inimitable soft-touch and versatility are perfectly interpreted," said Alcantara chairman and CEO Andrea Boragno. You can see the bright reflective material used on the outerwear to portray that futuristic feel in the collection pictures below.

Additionally, Y's showed off its own "ZENTHE" pieces which emphasis Yamamoto's love of long coats with various buttons, straps and locking mechanisms. Color is added to this collection in multiple hues of red as well as fur prints.

You can pick up the collection this fall at Y's Tokyo with other locations in Japan receiving it later on in the year. While you wait, check out the images from the Fall/Winter 2014/15 Y's Alcantara show.
