Y-3 2015 Fall/Winter Kohna “Black”

Y-3 releases the flexible and lightweight Kohna silhouette in a black/round red colorway on a mixed construction of textile, suede and leather. The Kohna “Black” is a low-top sneaker that has an all-black upper fashioned from plush, breathable Neoprene, and features a suede heel patch and tab, a leather trim on the tongue, black rounded laces, a black and white split outsole, and textile lining and insole. A black and white patterned leather patch is stitched on the heel counter and bright red accents are found on the heel tab and outsole.

The model also comes with two sets of laces and dust bags. You can purchase the Y-3 Kohna “Black” now at Très Bien for approximately $276 USD.

A Yohji Yamamoto/Hello Kitty line is in the works

Hello Kitty and Yohji Yamamoto

NYMag (by Véronique Hyland):

The demographic that was thrilled over the Frozen/Comme des Garçons collab this winter has something new to look forward to. WWD reports that Sanrio, which famously owns the Hello Kitty empire, is teaming up with none other than Yohji Yamamoto for a new line, to be called Kitty’s. (Presumably, the spelling is a takeoff on the designer’s Y’s collection.)

The collection will include apparel and accessories sporting Hello Kitty and My Melody characters. The new brand will open two stores this spring, both in Japan, with prices ranging from about $72 to $330. Since it’s Yohji, we can only hope that plenty of deconstruction and monochrome black will offset the whimsy.

Yohji Yamamoto x adidas Originals Superstar “Metallic” Pack

As part of the ongoing anniversary celebration of the Superstar silhouette, adidas Originals has commissioned frequent Three Stripes collaborator Yohji Yamamoto to offer his own unique take on the classic shoe. Yamamoto’s iteration is definitely one of the most unorthodox that we have seen, featuring a bold metallic leather upper in vibrant red and blue, contrasted by a white midsole, heel pad and Shell Toe. Finishing touches include blue waxed laces and Yamamoto’s signature branding on either side.

The Yohji Yamamoto x adidas Originals Superstar “Metallic” will carry a price tag of $380 USD and will be available at select adidas stockists in the coming weeks.
