Renowned designer Yohji Yamamoto gained his inspiration from soccer and the World Cup for Y-3, a collaboration with Adidas, Spring 2010 collection. There were pieces representing Jamaicia, Japan, Brazil, and the like represented on the cat-walk . Tailored jackets were paired with loose pants for both men and women; athletic wear with a twist.
Soccer balls and soccer cleats were a few of the props used, but the most important element that stood out to me were the netted pieces. Using the “movement of the net after making a goal” (Yamamoto) as his fuel, Yamamoto draped some as dresses, scarves, and long tops. From the look of it at first, you may think, “fish-net?”, but it’s so much more.~C.M. young and modern line
