Y-3 AUTUMN| WINTER 2011 collection NEW YORK

Y-3 hits the road for Autumn/Winter 2011 with a collection inspired by the nature of escape—on horseback, on foot, and into the hills. Fittingly, the show presented clothing designed for a journey, combining classic materials and silhouettes with futuristic and protective details like waterproof zippers, neoprene insets, holographic toggles, and ergonomic quilting- brigitte segura

Shown in  Soho,  the collection debuted on a set constructed to resemble a dusty trail, Yohji’s back-to-nature message for Fall | Winter 2011 on FDM… Exploring variations on a theme of escape inspired by Jack Kerouac’s On the Road and Jon Krakauer’s Into the Wild, there were exaggerated funnel-neck collars; simple modularity; voluminous, cocoon-like silhouettes; and intensive quilting on everything from hoods to coats to leggings.  Yohji fashioned  prints and patches spelling out the theme, with phrases like “Nowhere in Particular,” “Homeward Bound,” and “I’m on the Road.”  

The women’s collection played with volume and comfort, cut-away dresses, wool puffer shrugs, and oversized wide-leg wool pants- in the usual blacks, olive drab, and red, continuing to be an obvious ‘couleur’ on the Fall 2011 runways in New York. “Traveling means coming back home,” Yamamoto explained backstage of the show’s inspiration. “We are always unconsciously wanting to come back. It is one of man’s strongest desires.”
