Chapter 1 - Take Cover
A collection that reimagines the functional codes of protective design through Yohji Yamamoto's quintessentially elevated lens.
Chapter 1 of Spring/Summer 2021 has been expertly crafted to cut through the darkness of rainfall in urban spaces. Inspired by “Tsuyu,” the Japanese name for “Rainy Season,” Y-3 elegantly blends weather-resistant materials with reflective details and avant-garde aesthetics.
Infused with artful visual cues, the garments in Chapter 1 proudly defy the inevitability of urban rain. Reflective details, unexpected color palettes, and weather-resistant materials are brought to life through asymmetrical layers and carefully considered silhouettes.
