New in... Y-3 SPORT AW16
A pioneering collaboration between sportswear specialist adidas and Japanese design-guru Yohji Yamamoto, AW16 sees Y-3 SPORT pick up where the inaugural collection left off. Monochrome but not monotone, each item’s obsidian nature draws attention to innovative detailing and winter-specific technical innovations. It may be designed by one of fashion’s most compelling avant-gardists, but the focus here is highly functional perfection.
Standout pieces include this season’s Airflow Jacket, which utilises waterproof
ADIZERO™ fabric to make it incredibly lightweight and breathable. Elsewhere, there is the Tech Knit Long Sleeve, woven from reflective yarn with side zip detailing and a ventilated mouth covering. The Sport Trail X sneaker features the now-iconic BOOST™ sole technology with a rubber outsole by Continental – a German tyre manufacturer – for unparalleled traction.
The womenswear offering for AW16 is equally innovative, with a Support Corset that blends the lines between fashion and sport, with high-elasticity straps to ensure a complete range of motion. The collection also includes a distinctive 3L Waterproof Parka with a structured arm silhouette and detachable sleeve cuffs, making it both sport- and street-ready.
