“Blink” Retail: Y3 launches second London store

When I think of Adidas and designer collaborations, the first name that comes to mind is Stella McCartney. I guess that might be the case for most people. After all, the Stella for Adidas collection is really fabulous and highly covetable so I don’t feel to bad about that.

In actual fact, the Stella hook up is the second designer collaboration for Adidas. This year is the tenth anniversary of the Y3 collection, the name of the Adidas collaboration with conceptual and utterly innovative Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto. Yamamoto is one of the longest standing and most influential designers out of Japan, alongside Comme des Garcon’s Rei Kawakubo and Issey Miyake. The Y3 collection is less about functional sportswear and more about a sports inspired take on relaxed fashion, expressed with Yamamoto’s signature sculptural shapes and innovative detailing.

The new Y3 store is a clean and open space on Covent Garden’s Floral Street, subtly reflecting the Adidas three stripe signature through the triple shelving. The use of mirrors helps to show the detailed elements of the footwear collection in 360 degrees. The shoes in the Autumn collection deserve that additional focus as they are quite stunning, from the refined Y3 trainers to incredible platformed designs with amazing furry inserts.

Streetstyle: In the Bag

Our last post of Asta’s streetstyle snapping from last weekend, and we really love this final look. She looks super chic but also very individual. She is rocking a rather fine bag along with that lovely camel coat. Is it the hair and her make up that gives this all a really retro feel, or is it the proportions of her outfit? Maybe its just the overall combination. She has got us thinking of Mary Poppins though… maybe we’ve just discovered our new season style icon?

Streetstyle: Menswear Inspiration

So, here’s day two of this weekend’s streetstyle shots and we’ve decided that Wednesday is all about the boys. Here are some really diverse looks that each individually look very cool. From retro formal (with fro), through relaxed formal to a softened rock look. These reflect just a small part of the fabulous diversity of looks out there for the boys this Spring. We hope to bring you some more very soon.

Thanks to Asta for all of this weeks shots. Great work.

Streetstyle: Spring Back to Black

For this week we have a selection of streetstyle shots that showcase what’s being worn right now- and I have to say that the bold colour message is perhaps yet to fully filter through to the streets. Well, yesterday was officially the first day of Spring so perhaps we’ll start to see more colour coming through. For this weekend, however, it was still about layering, tonality and neutrals. We start off with two very cool looking shady ladies rocking black on black…
