Y-3 F/W 2019-20

Y-3 is the Only Brand You Need

Runway Show Paris Fashion Week March 2019

If I could choose only one brand it would be Y-3.  It can be worn at an upscale event, brunch, a Sporting event, on the streetz or even for lounging around the crib on a Sunday afternoon. Usual colors are Black + White and even when other colors are positioned in, they tend to look pretty nice.

The clothes are always made with superior high quality.  Every pair of Y-3 pants I own are sturdy, solid and clean. I can actually feel the high standard of tailorshp that goes into them, when I wear them.

Although they can run a tad big at times. I do own a piece or 2 that are a bit big. If you get a chance, try them on.  Pro Tip:  SSENSE tends to have the best on-line sales.  And Bloomingdale’s  is the place to go for selection, quantity and to try the goods on for your fit. You may need to size down 1-2 sizes dependent on the year the Y-3 clothes are from.  For this show they did run a tad Big.  You can also catch Y-3 on the Adidas site, where you will find a pretty decent array of clothing and All of this season’s shoes.

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

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

Y-3 is launching a Limited Edition collection with James harden on Friday April 13, 2018. The Video below is a teaser of the various pieces.  Almost all items are in black which is super cool. Some Indigo/Very Dark blue and Champagne/Off White.

YOU KNOW your a Fashionista or a Fashionister when…

OMG! I sure hope there's a Y-3 Sample Sale nearby in Hawaii

…you see a sign that says Y-3 in the Sam’s club parking lot letting people know what level and area that they jut parked in. And instead of thinking its a parking sign like most people you get real excited from the sign and  walk up close to it thinking “Wow!  Y-3 -Oh Man! I sure hope there’s a sample sale or pop-up store nearby” and seeing this sign in yellow and black, it sure doesn’t help that the Y-3 brand Uses orange and black as their brands colors.  Me being a pretty bad fashionister especially when it comes to kicks and jeans went right up to the sign and took this picture.  And “No” there was no sample sale or pop-up store nearby. Bummer.

Although one of the reasons this sign stood out to me was my good friend Rolanda in NYC was the first to let me know about sample sales years ago and the Y-3 Sale was the first REAL name brand sale That I ever attended.I loved it, real expensive clothes and kicks for extremely great prices and since I wear Large, a 40 suit and either a 9.5 or 10 size shoe, the sample sales work for me perfectly.  Even though I only wear these shoes once a year at Halloween, I just had to buy something at the Y-3 Sample sale, so I bought theses super bright Y-3’s and at the time bright orange was one of my favorite colors so it worked out well

My Y-3 super bright Orange Hi-Top kicks! Yep, They’re Bright but they’re REAL Y-3’s and that is what matters most!

The funny thing about these shoes is the box says they are for basketball-see below-I cant see anyone in this world wearing them to play basketball. they are soft suede Fashionister shoes only made for late night european style dinners and hotel  Costes After hours lounge parties.

Play B-Ball in these? Hell No! These are sweet, expensive, big time designer shoes!

 Note: defines the word:fash·ion·is·ta as:



a very fashionable person, especially one who works in the fashion industry.

And I define Fashionister (Fash-Uh-Nee-Stir) as the male version of the female Fashionista.  For some reason, I couldn’t find Fashionister on Wikipedia, encyclopedia Britannica or even  Hey-Next week, I’ll be in Seattle for my Step Sisters Weddng. I’ll be hitting the streetz with new QR-Code Stickers and scoping out the latest fashion finds for all the fashionistas and fashionisters, street culture vultures, trendhunters, Hot trends peeps etc.  stay tuned for the Seattle Streetz  Leave a comment if you like, LMK your favorite sample sales or tips on what to do at a sale or  email me at or text or call me if you live in Seattle and have some cool places you think I should check out!  AlohaLatersForNow.


Bright Me!
