Y-3 Spring/Summer 2011


Y-3 is ready to rock, taking inspiration from the icons of music history for an explosive collection of hard-core looks. From lambskin leather motorcycle vests to tailored military jackets, Y-3’s Spring/Summer 2011 show took a tour through three decades of rock style, sending a model army of Janis Joplins, Elvis Presleys, and Jimi Hendrixes out onto the runway. 

The collection highlights a contemporary take on classic rock silhouettes, from the hot-and-heavy leather looks of the ’60s, to the psychedelic prints of the ’70s, to the eccentric, edgy styles of the ’80s. Military jackets in metallic cotton sateen evoked the devil-may-care attitude of Jimi Hendrix. And highly-tailored jackets for men looked pulled from the wardrobe of the King, Elvis Presley. Rock music and sex appeal go hand in hand, and neither was in short supply. Y-3 also tapped Yoko Ono—another icon of music—for a selection of coats and T-shirts printed with the artist’s text pieces, like “Open Your Eyes, Open Your Door, Open Your Legs, Open Your Sides, Open Your Heart, Open Your Mouth.”

The latest Y-3 collection is available from retail stores worldwide.
