To celebrate the release Y-3 have released this short film, by Nathan Gallagher, to showcase the aesthetic and performance credentials of the offshoot of Y-3’s mainline. Athletes in the film are pushed to the edge of their abilities before leaping off into a surreal isolation where gravity disappears and the grace and beauty of the clothes and the human body in motion take over.
The collection combines Y-3’s renegade aesthetic with some of adidas’ most industry defining technologies.
At the core of the revolutionary collection is adidas’ desire to remain the future of sportswear. Utilising adidas’ highest performing fabrics, technologies and innovation to deliver a ground-breaking collection, Y-3 SPORT brings the worlds of sport and fashion together.
With highlight products breaking the boundaries of fashion engineering processes, stand-out pieces are innovative to the core. The Approach Jacket protects against the elements with additional lightweight bonded seams and lasered ventilation technology, utilising adidas’ advanced heat mapping research. In the same category, the Approach shoe features BOOST technology, a support Torsion system for maximum energy return and a fitted Primeknit sock booty for ultimate comfort and style.
The Y-3 SPORT SS16 collection is available from 15th of April at select retailers worldwide and www.Y-3SPORT.com.
