Yohji Yamamoto and adidas‘s collaborative venture – Y-3 presented Spring Summer 2017 menswear collection during the Paris Fashion Week. The new collection, created for the futuristic space hiker, continues to push boundaries with NOCI – a robust yet lightweight sneaker. The clothes foster geometric elements in strict and neat shapes and straight lines, featuring single lapeled blazers, long vests, jumpsuits, baggy trousers, hoodies and draping outerwear. The color palette is typical Yamamoto’s black and white with the addition of indigo blue.
In a sneaker industry first, 3000 individually numbered pairs called ‘NOCI 0003’ will be available to consumers immediately after the shoes debut at the SS17 catwalk show at Paris Fashion Week: Men’s. Four additional versions of Y-3’s latest silhouette, referred to as ‘NOCI’, will then be available in retail from January 2017. The NOCI sneaker is a daring expression of provocative design and confidence. True to their innovative and non-conformist DNA, Y-3 have transformed conventional sneaker design in building the NOCI from many elements and fragments, and in condensing production lead times by half – from fourteen months to six. The special edition NOCI 0003 is available now in limited numbers from www.y-3.com. The NOCI inline model will be available from January 2017. – from Y-3
