The name Y-3 is built from three elements: Y stands for Yohji Yamamoto, the 3 represents Adidas’ three signature stripes, and the dash signifies the bond between the two. In October 2002, we saw the birth of a new cooperation in sport and fashion with the collaboration between Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto and sports brand Adidas. Both symbolize true craftsmanship, and together they continue to develop the future of sportswear.
While a utilitarian inspiration is evident throughout each collection, Y-3 possesses a technical feel and unexpected silhouettes that provide the contemporary sportswear with a unique look. Y-3's collection of men's and women's apparel, footwear and accessories continue to evolve, always evoking the perfect blend of Adidas' expertise and innovation in sports functionality and Yohji Yamamoto's signature sense of style.
