Ready-to-wear Y-3 Spring 2025: Luxury athleisure

Soccer stars Garrett Wilson, Naomie Feller, Fuka Nagano and Joel Chima, as well as skateboarder Marco Montoya, walked the Y-3 podium located atop the stage at Salle Pleyel in Paris. This marks the brand’s return to the fashion show format after five and a half years.

The timing of a big-bang production was well-suited for Y-3, designed jointly by Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas 22 years ago, just weeks before the start of the Paris Olympics in late July.

“Y-3 was born from the fusion of the apparent opposites of sport and style,” Yamamoto said in the show notes. “With Adidas, we worked to create something that didn’t exist and anticipated the future.”

The brand continues to take luxury athleisure to new heights and took the opportunity to unveil the official jersey of the Japan Football Federation for home and away matches.

For spring, Y-3 clothing was crafted around a trio of design principles of ventilation, reflex and layering, meant to reflect Adidas’ iconic three stripes. This logo swept through many looks, including on the side of sweatpants and a matching top in the middle of which two lines appeared painted, with frayed strings hanging down the sides.

Refined clothing cuts naturally blended into this collection also rich in technical clothing. Most looks were available in black, gray or navy, although lime, azure or red also appeared. Clothes stretched into evening wear, including a long patchwork parachute skirt.

The cool factor has energized footwear, with the Y-3 Regu, an interpretation of the first low-profile shoe created in collaboration between Yamamoto and Adidas. For the Y-3 Zodai, the Adidas Superstar has transformed into three models.
