Chapter 1 captures a dynamic energy as models stalk the urban outdoors in the season’s bold graphics. Poetry meets punk as models communicate a modern strength and grace against a gritty industrial backdrop. They delicately fall into each other to create unique contorted shapes that Bolzoni captures from surprising angles. The stark imagery complements the simple graphic emblazoned across the collection: a stacked logo motif combining the Y-3 logo, Yohji Yamamoto signature, and the slogan “brand with the 3 stripes” in multiple languages. Stamped across coach jackets, street kimonos, hooded sweaters, sling bags, and Adilettes, this graphic becomes the collection’s icon and a contemporary symbol of the Y-3 collaboration. – from Y-3
