Noa hearts Y3 – always has actually…

With the whole sport luxe trend hitting us all over again for spring/ summer 2011 – I can’t help but check out my all-time favourite sport luxe brand – Y-3 Adidas by Yohji Yamamoto.

To me Y-3 is the very physical form of the phrase “sport luxe” – there is no one and nothing else that encapsulates it as perfectly.

The collaboratin started in spring/ summer 2002 and has been an enormous success ever since – and why not, it was ground breaking at the time and has only had a thousand copycats since…

From the Adidas website: The collaboration between renowned Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto and the authentic sports brand adidas has revolutionized the industry, and created a new category within fashion. adidas represents sports, Yohji Yamamoto represents design, both symbolize true craftsmanship, and together they continue to develop the future of sportswear. With an emphasis on form and movement, Yohji Yamamoto’s signature design aesthetic is combined with traditional Japanese tailoring.

I for one absolutely adore the collaboration – some of current favourite pieces are:
