With sales continuing to double each season, Y’s is sticking close to its foundations for its fledgling resort line, offering transseasonal updates on core pieces to mix and match with pieces from the house’s main collection.


It was all recognizably Y’s, from roomy robes in super-soft dyed viscose to mannish black wool gabardine coats and wide suspender pants with angular parachute pockets. The news comes from two fabrics developed with Japanese artisans using traditional techniques: a lighter spin on Nishijin-ori, the thick, patterned woven fabric used for obi sashes, and nuishibori, a process in which  fabric is folded like origami, stitched with random straight lines and dyed; the stitches are then unpicked to reveal ghostly white traces.


There were also several offerings from Rismat by Y’s, the fledgling knitwear line exclusive to resort: fine-gauge, deceptively minimalist creations sporting playful details, including superlong cardigans with high-split cuffs and a black T-shirt dress with bands at the shoulders and a high side split that can be layered over sarouel pants.
