Y-3 Springs into Summer 2019

Y-3 Fits on Point

Y-3 Runway Show Menswear Spring/Summer 2019

Sunday June 24, 2018 Paris, France-Musee des Arts Decoratifs

Y-3 is the sporty athlesuire brand designed by Yohji Yamamto in conjunction with Adidas. They tend to stick true to their black and white color palette, with hints of various colors each season.  For SS 2019 we see some reds, greens, blues and a tannish beige/Off White. Y-3 is one of Streetzblog’s favorite brands. If we save up $$ for something, it’s usually Y-3, Rick Owens, Off-White or Alexander Wang x Adidas.

There’s plenty of time to save up, the clothes in this video will be ready to wear in Spring/Summer of 2019.

Y-3 enjoys the greatness of being able to work with ateliers in both Tokyo and Germany. Bringing the best of both Countries together.  This collection shows the specialty cuts from Tokyo/Yohji Yamamoto with innovative texture of clothing from Germany/Adidas. One of the Hot, New fabrics is used right now (June 2018) by athletes and will be available for all of us to wear in 2019. It’s the lightest Gore-Tex ever made entitled Shakedry.

The Biggest plus from the show are the clothes are getting back to baggy. Flowing, yet crisp Silhouettes. Some leggings inside of bellowing shorts and wide leg pants, which takes us one step further away from the Skinny Jean Fad.  And the Kicks are very nice and comfy with the rad Y-3 logo ever present.

This Runway show needs to be watched 2-5x to get the full effect. It’s hard to decide whether the clothes or the kicks are the Star. Both looks are on my Most Wanted List. If you look close at the clothes, you may see the new Y-3/Skull logo. It’s there, just a bit hard to find.  See what you think of the clothes and kicks and let us know in the comments section. And if you can’t wait till Spring/Summer 2018, you can get some nice deals (up to 30% off) on the y-3 stacked logo, limited edition James Harden collection or some nice Bashyo’s here at Y3.com

Below are some of the Best looks from the Runway. Pictures courtesy of Vogue.com See more pix here at (Vogue.com)  Shakedry name supplied by Vogue and WWD.

The outfits in the crowd had some nice Off-White exclusives and lots of  Ultra Decent Fits

New Off-White branding in stylized Script

Not enough of what we want-T’s and Hoodies with Off-White in big bold letters on the back.  As soon as any of these go on sale, they sell out very quickly.

Bling Blang Wang

Alexander Wang Runway Show

COLLECTION 1

New York City

Sunday June 3, 2018

Early Summer NYC with crisp cool air,  Alexander Wang and the Wang Gang bring the Heat.  The Athleisure Sexy Bondage Sexy Goth, Bling AW Belts, Spiked heels, Bulky Kicks, with some patriotic clothes and Star make-up mixed in for good measure.  Quite a Show.

AW keeps to his traditional color palette of black and white. The overall look is similar to the 2014 AW x H&M Collection.

I’m liking the uni-sex number 88 jersey.  Black & White with some comfy short sleeves. The roominess is a great sign for Fall 2018. 

Looking like it’s gonna be an Alexander Wang Gear 4th of July party! Face paint with striped stars, nice touch.  Pop of red with a hint of blue. I see a Lei!

The Athleisure Bondage Sexy Goth. Makes you want to quit the carbs and get some abs..eh?

Nice roof-top NYC setting.  Sandra Bernhard hosted Wang TV. The Classic Alexander Wang running, jumping, waving, smiling &  greeting guests post show.  One last look at the Bling it on, leather, no lace lookity-look for Fall 2018

See you on the Streetz!

Exuding Elegance in Le Cite De La Mode

Yohji Yamamoto Fall/Winter 2018-19

Paris Fashion Week:  March 2, 2018

One of my goals is to make it to NY Fashion week. After seeing the Paris shows in Feb/Mar 2018, I’m thinking a better goal is to make it to Paris Fashion week. This show is from the Paris portion of the Feb/Mar Quad Fashion Foray.  New York, London, Milan & Paris. And it is Exquisite. Yes, Paris is the goal! Or as YY calls it on the IG post: the Cite de la Mode

Only doing Highlights today.  The show doesn’t really have any low-lights other than the color brown…LOL   I’ll stick with the 2018 easy to read, super-quick attention span style of writing with the fun fonts, colors, bolding etc.

Highlights:

Flowing, Graceful, & Peaceful 

Color Palette:  Black, Dark Grey, A Bit of White and some Brown

A bit of Bowie influence on the Make-Up side of things. Rectangles over one eye

Asymmetric, Bulky-Fluidity, Moving like a slowed down silent movie

Amazing hairdo’s

Classic, Yet a la mode, On-trend, Traditional YY

Comfy Kicks in Highs and Lows-Extra Nice Boots, Cool Tennies in Black and White

Did I say lots and lots of the color Black! YAH!!

Check out the crowd, it’s like they’re frozen in time, in a trance like state! I don’t think I saw a single person move the whole show. Amazing.  And by the looks of the crowd, seems like they took their iPhones from them before the show?  Maybe?

What do you think of the show? This season’s Runway shows?  See you on the Streetz!

Safety Orange Reflective Tape comes between Me and my Calvin’s

Sound the Sirens!

Raf Simons for Calvin Klein F/W 2018

Not sure, how I missed Raf Simons going to CK. Thought his own brand and latest Blade Runner themed Runway show was doing well for him. I suspect it is and he just wanted a new challenge. I do know when I was at DSMNY, Raf’s clothes came in one day and out the other, same with the kicks, Everything sold out very quickly.

I have a personal liking to this collection. In the late 90’s, I was sewing Orange reflective tape on to my shorts, jackets and pants. Was and still is one of my favorite accents.

Here are many of the looks with the Safety-Orange Reflective Tape used on the F/W 2018 clothing.

Orange and Yellow Reflective Tape Accents. Plus a pretty Rad-Raf long-faux Leopard jacket! 

Here’s a few similar items I spotted at the Canal Street Art Cafe in NYC December 2017 The person working the cafe/store/art exhibition told me that Tommy Hilfiger’s younger brother: Andy,  designed these jackets.

And a few of my things lying around the house. Not all with the reflective tape, but all with the vibrant orange hue!

See you on the Streetz…blog!
