NEW YORK, Oct 31, 2011/ — To celebrate ten years of collaboration between Yohji Yamamoto and adidas, Y-3 will screen the documentary YOHJI YAMAMOTO: THIS IS MY DREAM throughout 2011 in various cities across the globe including Berlin, New York, London, Tokyo, Beijing and Paris.

From November 2011 the documentary will be available for purchase for the first time in Yohji Yamamoto and Y-3 boutiques as well as select retailers worldwide. The short film will be included in a DVD format within a specially made package. The package will also include an aroma candle with a uniquely designed fragrance to commemorate the occasion of the ten year anniversary.

The soy wax candle is handmade in France and blends only natural essential oils of cedar wood, patchouli, lavender and grapefruit to create a unique scent.

The DVD package is limited to 3000 pieces globally and is available for a retail price of US$ 95.


Notoriously private Japanese fashion design icon Yohji Yamamoto lets his guard down in an exclusive, intimate short documentary film about life and the creative process, from Tokyo to New York.

A perfect emblem of Yamamoto’s drive for innovation, the Y-3 label -one of eight distinctive lines the designer oversees- has created a new category in fashion since its introduction in 2002. Born out of a desire to merge Yamamoto’s craftsmanship with adidas’ technical prowess, Y-3 has come to be recognized as the future of sportswear, and it is the backdrop against which the film unfolds.
