Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto return to present their Y-3 Atelier collection, which boldly expresses the label’s DNA by fusing craftsmanship of Yohji Yamamoto and innovation of Adidas. Conceptualised as the most crystalised execution of Y-3’s vision, the exclusive Y-3 Atelier apparel and footwear line is an elevated craft-focused offering that advances an approach to production driven by skill and undeterred dedication. 

For its second collection, Y-3 Atelier introduces a suite of elegantly tailored pieces which blend adidas’ performance heritage with Yohji Yamamoto’s avant-garde design vision. The collection takes original Yohji Yamamoto and Yohji Yamamoto POUR HOMME designs that are from the runway show and recreates them in fully seam sealed waterproof 3-layer GORE-TEX® material constructions, while maintaining the signature silhouette of the original designs. Featuring extended seams and flap pockets, the selection of monochromatic black vests, coats, parkas, blousons, jackets, and blazers comes replete with reflective logos – reframing the signature Yohji Yamamoto aesthetic for an entirely new context.

Accompanying the launch of the collection is a series of still images captured by photographer Thue Nørgaard which convey the inherent dynamism of each piece.
