Former Y-3 Designer, Stephanie Saris has been sharing some of the initial development of a few of the Y-3 silhouettes she was involved in creating. The latest being a look at an initial sample of the Y-3 REN II, a style that features a layered Mesh upper with 3d embroidery cut outs.
“In this try out you can see good the layering of material. The cut out 3d embroidery shows the mesh underneath. The initial idea was to have the lacing (system) coming out of the side cut outs as well.” – Saris
You can see the initial proto, as well as a look at the final REN II, below.
