So instead I provide you with Y-3's new Spring/Summer collection for 2010. Y-3 is a collaborative project between Adidas and Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, with the aim of producing clothing that combines high fashion with classic Adidas styling. The brand, established in 2003, is one of my favourite's, I am especially fond of the jackets which the line has created over the past few years. Previous lines have produced unique designs that showcase bold colours along with classic and also innovative styles of clothing. Below I have picked out some of my favourite pieces from Y-3's SS10 collection, which once again delivers the goods.
Also, in celebration of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Yamamoto and Adidas have decided to create an additional collection, which focuses on the abstract idea of World Cup dressing. This collection was unveiled as part of the New York Fashion week at the end of last year and is only now set to be released. Pictures of the event, which French football legend Zinedine Zidane attended (he has a close affiliation with Adidas after years of sponsorship), and the World Cup line can be seen below the Y-3 SS10 collection pictures. Obtaining these items may prove difficult, with only specialist retail stores stocking Y-3 products (www.adidas.co.uk/y-3/).
