Y-3 RTW Fall 2010 / NYCFW Day-05

While Yohji Yamamoto’s eponymous line is waging a tough fight these days, the designer was clearly in a playful mood when it came to his Adidas-backed collection. Models came bounding out wearing first a series of casual plaid basics that were slightly military-esque, followed by plays on volume, be it the fullness of capes or the gathered skirts of racer-back dresses.

Yamamoto hasn’t shown his signature men’s collection recently, but meanwhile, Y-3 looks more Yohji than ever in the baggy tailoring, washed fabrics and military influences. Culottes and tartans also harked back to past Yohji collections, while Simon & Garfunkel songs set a nostalgic, wistful mood. The finale saw Yamamoto getting “knocked out” by one of his models, only to rise up with a grin and a wave to the crowd.
