Highsnobiety recently caught up with global senior VP of design for adidas Originals and style, Nic Galway to discuss the inspiration and thought process behind Y3’s latest collection.
Galway explained to Highsnobiety, “For the Y-3 Fall/Winter 2019 collection, we focused on three eras that are crucial to both adidas and Yamamoto: the ’70s, the ’80s, and the ’90s. It’s about “Icons meet icons” – interpreting our individual codes through the lens of one another. In footwear, the range presents directional, low-profile sneakers, elevated court trainers, and modernized reissues from the initial pioneering collaborations between Yohji Yamamoto & adidas.”
Below you can get a look at Y3’s collection, as well as getting an explanation on each of the styles from Nic – for the full article head to Highsnob.
