Y-3 Autumn/Winter 2014 - Paris Fashion Show
Superheroes might be the world’s only remaining hope. This is the message of a playful, surreal, and optimistic collection from Y-3, which showed for the first time during Paris Men’s Fashion Week at the Couvent des Cordeliers on Sunday, January 19, 2014.
Men’s and women’s pieces were presented together in a range of retro-tinged primary colors. Clothes emphasized functionality and modularity to underscore Y-3’s commitment to the vision of sport-style. Stunningly revealed in an epic black and white setting with a neon light backdrop, models stalked the runway to superhero music themes and were watched by a front-row crowd including music icon A$AP Rocky, Parisian socialites Louise Monot, Caroline Proust and Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, German actor Clemens Schick as well as adidas athletes Gwladys Épangue (Olympian/Taekwondo), Wendie Renard (Football/Lyon/National Team Member), Laura Flessel-Colovic (Olympian/Fencing) and Jimmy Vicaut (Sprinter).
The collection played up a contrast between utopia and dystopia—the former expressed in a hand-drawn manga comic strip that was magnified to bring a graphic texture to the clothes, the latter realized in dramatic, voluminous silhouettes in classic Yohji Yamamoto black, as well as deep scarlets, honey yellows, and dark indigos. Distressed fabrics and sumptuous fake furs contrasted with clean, polished, technical sportswear and luxurious, high-shine leathers. The playful superhero theme was heightened with T-shirts and tanks printed with dramatic comic-book slogans like “TO BE CONTINUED…” and “SO WE MEET AGAIN.”
