Yohji Yamamoto x adidas consortium Stan Smith “Y’s”
Relase Date: March 15
Stores: Y’s Stores and selected Consortium Retailers

“Stan Smith has sprung back into the limelight. Following Consortium’s Stan Smith Materials pack – which adhered to the original colour combination of white and fairway green – adidas now joins forces with five of Asia’s influential designers. From streetwear to product designers, each adds their distinct reinterpretation of the iconic silhouette for SS14’s Consortium Stan Smith Collaboration Pack. Avant-garde fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto has had a successful partnership with adidas for over a decade with sportswear label Y-3 and now brings his unique viewpoint under his Y’s line for this version, the Stan Smith Y’s. The bones of the original shoe are there – that is, the sleek, simple silhouette – but that’s where the similarities end. Yamamoto’s version is executed in several materials; thick navy canvas on the lateral and medial quarters; grey suede accents on the eyestay and heel tab; and white smooth leather on the toe box and tongue. Hand-stitched style zig-zag embroidery replaces the original perforated 3-Stripes, with threads overhanging the midsole, enabling them to fray over time. A Stan Smith callout and trefoil sit debossed on the heel, whilst an oversized Y’s logo lives on the tongue. ”
