I selected only 3 items to view , Y-3 SS11 was endless with some pieces that honestly looked very simliar to each other but these 3 stood out for me, not only the color but the design cut on them looks real nice with just that little detail making them that finished piece.
Even though Y-3 designer Yohji Yamamoto was absent from the presentation, staying in Tokyo instead to complete his womenswear collection, Y-3 took over the catwalk in true rock ‘n roll style.
Funnily enough all the women pieces were all revealing which when you think of rock n’ roll people would go out dressed like this to late night parties and bars in around town with one another.
Taking inspiration from the icons of music history for an explosive collection of hard-core looks. From lambskin leather motorcycle vests to tailored military jackets, Y-3’s Spring/Summer 2011 show took a tour through three decades of rock style, sending a model army of Janis Joplins, Elvis Presleys, and Jimi Hendrixes out onto the runway.
Presented on Sunday, September 12th as part of New York fashion week, the collection explored the power and escapism of rock and roll, a theme that was underscored with a live sound track courtesy of British band The Duke Spirit. Guests including Bambou and Lulu Gainsbourg, Alison Brie, Liberty Ross, Leigh Lezark, Geordon Nicol, and the Wonder Girls jammed out to the group’s hard-stomping sound.
Rock music and sex appeal go hand in hand, and neither was in short supply. Y-3 proposed cropped tanks for both men and women, and, for the girls, flowing sarong skirts and tight black leggings that erupted almost erotically into a spray of ruffles at the knee. The rest of the show presented intriguing contrasts of volume-tight on top, loose on bottom, and vice versa-in classic Yamamoto fashion.
