Y-3 RUNNER 4D

This winter, icons meet icons as adidas and Yohji Yamamoto reinterpret the striking Y-3 RUNNER 4D. Showcasing the extensive Yohji Yamamoto design archive, the updated silhouette takes cues from the stitched-on ‘cage’ of the Y-3 YUUTO, a modern interpretation of the TENET, the  first pioneering style created by Yohji Yamamoto and adidas, translating its once-revolutionary aesthetics to the present day and beyond.

Inspired by the ALPHAEDGE 4D the Y-3 Runner 4D features the latest evolution of ADIDAS 4D technology. Leveraging adidas’ extensive archive of computational athletic data, ADIDAS 4D is a high-performance midsole crafted with light and oxygen using Digital Light Synthesis™ printing technology.

Only available in adidas flagship stores.

Y-3 presents an exploration of its heritage through the lens of Japanese culture in the first drop of the spring/summer collection. Aptly named Craft, the collection emphasizes Yohji Yamamoto's focus on unique craftsmanship and tailoring.

Elegant silhouettes cut from luxurious textiles in multi-layer constructions highlight the careful craftsmanship at the heart of the theme. A playful exploration of dramatic proportions and daring shapes stays true to the core of Y-3. Classic Yamamoto tailoring of premium fabrics feature elegant micro trims, subtle Three-Stripes detailing and Japanese sub-culture references in the embroidery.

Avant-garde footwear styles complement the collection with a striking aesthetic set on a bold outsole, each sneaker delivers the innovative aesthetic that has come to be expected from Y-3 footwear.

Yohji Yamamoto is known for the avant-garde spirit of his clothing, His signature oversized silhouettes in black often feature drapery in varying textures.

Born in Tokyo, Yamamoto graduated from Keio University with a degree in law in 1966. His mother was a dressmaker who had a shop in in Kabukicho (an amusement and entertainment district in Tokyo’s Shinjuku). After graduating, he realised a law career was not for him. “I didn’t want to join the ordinary society,” he told BoF. “So I told my mother after graduation…I want to help you.” Yamamoto’s mother agreed to let him work at her shop, saying he could learn from the sewing assistants. At her request, he also enrolled at Bunka Fashion College, now famous for training designers including Kenzo Takada, Junya Watanabe and Yamamoto himself.

After graduating from Bunka, he received a prize to go to Paris for a year, but it was back in Japan that Yamamoto began to discover his true voice as a designer. He set up a small ready-to-wear company that slowly acquired buyers in all the major cities in Japan. The success turned his thoughts back to Paris, and at the beginning of the 1980s Yamamoto returned to the French capital to open his first shop.

Since then, Yamamoto has developed a dedicated global following. His two main lines Yohji Yamamoto and Y's are stocked in high-end department stores worldwide and, in 2007, clocked sales above $100 million, according to the company. Yamamoto's other lines include Pour Homme, Costume d'Homme and Regulation Yohji Yamamoto.

Yamamoto has been recognised for his contributions to fashion with awards including the Chevalier of Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon, the Ordre national du Mérite, the Royal Designer for Industry and the Master of Design award by Fashion Group International.
