NEW YORK, Aug 18, 2011/ — With the Roman numeral X as part of the logo, adidas and Yohji Yamamoto unveil the X Collection by adidas for Yohji Yamamoto as they put their 10 years of collaboration front and center.
For a decade now, Yohji Yamamoto and adidas have pushed the boundaries of fashion and sport. The collection celebrates the fusion of Yamamoto’s signature wit and spirit with the breakthrough design and performance of adidas.
By recalling the progressive elements of their very first collection presented in 2001, Yamamoto and adidas pay tribute to the past while looking ahead to the future.
‘Ten years ago, together with adidas we created something that did not exist before and completely projected the future. My desire was and is to make sportswear elegant and chic. adidas is a very personal inspiration to me…it enriches my creative life.’ Yohji Yamamoto
This footwear range focuses on red, black and white color combinations in classic styles, such as the Yohji Pacer, Smith and Star as well as more technical hi tops, including the Campus Wrestling, X Bounce and GSGX.
Presented during Paris Fashion Week at the Yohji Yamamoto Homme Automne–Hiver 2011-2012 Defilé, this collection arrives in a limited edition of 300 per style and is available in Yohji Yamamoto and Y-3 boutiques worldwide in mid August 2011.
