In honour of the upcoming World Cup finals in South Africa next summer, Yohji Yamamoto’s Y-3 unveiled their spring collection in a show centred around national anthems and featuring a stadium installation to embrace their concept of combining sports with fashion. Yamamoto, unparalleled in the world of fashion avant-garde, presented new designs for his spring lineup which included exaggerated silhouettes, loose-cut trousers, and abstract flag motifs in the colorways of eight soccer federations sponsored by adidas: South Africa, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Argentina, France, and Russia. Other pieces in the Y-3 collection include oversized plaid shirts, nylon parkas, and a range of tank tops. The show closed with France soccer legend Zinedine Zidane sharing a kickabout with Yamamoto, with other celebrities such as Lupe Fiasco, Russell Simmons, Devon Aoki, and Rufus Wainwright also in attendance.
