Y-3’s FW23 Collection: Pushing the Boundaries of Experimental Fashion

The Fall/Winter 2023 collection from Y-3 is a showcase of technical innovation and sporty influence. The brand presents an array of footwear, with the standout being a new adidas sample shoe.


This shoe boasts a curved silhouette and takes inspiration from the adidas Originals Superstar. It features the iconic Three Stripe branding on the lateral side and is paired with a raised and chunky sole unit, similar to the Y-3 x adidas Hicho sneaker from the previous year.

The collection also merges contemporary and streetwear styles, with looks featuring free-flowing blazers paired with parachute track bottoms. Technical elements are also present in the designs, such as hidden pockets on lightweight button-up shirts and combat-inspired trousers. Drawstring detailing is incorporated in several quilted jackets and skirts, and snap buttons are used for thin gilet designs.


The color scheme of the collection is striking, with a range of vivid hues featured across the garments. These include cleanly-fitted and oversized jackets. The collection seamlessly brings together various styles and pushes the boundaries of experimentation.
