In the most colourful collection in the label’s history, Yohji Yamamoto’s Y-3 AW18 runway show showcased the Japanese master’s penchant for draped silhouettes with punchy fluorescent yellows amid elegant blacks and rich navies.

Logomania continued with stacked branding across select pieces, with the iconic 3 stripes of adidas adding dynamism to belted overcoats and more typical sportswear staples. 

The show debuted all-new footwear - exaggerated runners and bright yellow slip-ons guaranteed to grab the attention of long-time fans of the brand. Despite the bright shades, Y-3’s AW18 sneaker offering follow the tried and tested formula: fashion-forward but equally wearable.

Yamamoto’s use of yellow will no doubt grab the headlines, highlighting the wider trend for colour and maximalism across Paris Fashion Week. Both Yohji and Ann Demeulemeester are some of the biggest advocates of monochrome in the industry - both opting for pops of colour in their AW18 collections.
