In an abandoned market on New York’s Lower East Side, Yohji Yamamoto sent out an “Analog vs. Digital” collection for Y-3, contrasting the traditional with the modern. For women, it translated into a mix of materials, textures and lengths that were worked to good effect. A key look was a fitted sweater, puffer vest and neon plaid scarf worn with skinny pants and a transparent PVC kilt that was cut in half.
Yamamoto’s men’s wear had more of a utility-meets-street vibe with a strong focus on outerwear — from hearty parkas to transparent toppers trimmed with neon. A geometric pattern was carried throughout the knits, worn with cropped pants or slouchy shorts over leggings for an almost punky feel.
